As far as I know, the Nextcloud server instance needs to have read/write access to (local) folders that are mounted through the external storage application. I do have folders that I would like to share (i.e., mount with the external storage application and give users read access). However, I do not want to give write permission to anybody (including the Nextcloud server instance) but the owner of the folder. I want these files to be read only from the beginning because those folders are managed from outside Nextcloud anyways. Maybe I am missing something but this seems to be impossible at the moment.
For instance, the folder
Shared is owned by
user1. It is only writeable by
user1 but readable by members of the group
user1 and everybody else. I would like to add this folder to Nextcloud without the intention and possibility to write anything into this folder.
ls -l Shared drwxr-xr-x 13 user1 user1 4096 Nov 25 17:53 Shared
Maybe I am missing something, please let me know! Thank you.
