Sync takes long

We are using Nextcloud 13.0.5 together with various external storage options. In this specific case we have the following configuration:

  • 2 users
  • External storage (on premise S3 storage)
  • 320 GB / 350 folders / 4400 files

When user A adds a file it is synced to the server directly, but it takes quite long (up to 30-45 minutes) till user B sees this modification. In user’s B client you can see that it is scanning all the folders for changes.

I wonder if this could be related to the fact it is external storage and if there is a way to make the sync “smarter” so it is able to push changes to the client instead of scanning all folders again.
