Transfer external storage files, take over ownership

Nextcloud version (eg, 20.0.5): 22.2.3
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04): Ubuntu 20.04
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25): nginx

Hi there,
I want to take over ownership of files from external storage.
The Files are stored on a Nextcloud, where they are shared with me via user@nextcloud

long Story

  • Currently the files are stored on a managed server (Where I have admin access on nextloud level)
  • I have set up my own server in the same data center (With admin access on root level)
  • Now I want to move my files from the managed Nextcloud to my own nextcloud

Is there a proper way of doing that?
My target is to avoid to use my home bandwidth (download-upload everything). And second: to move the data within the data center (avoid external traffic at all).

Using the nextcloud interface and simply copy the folder works.
I didn’t realize in first hand, because it doesn’t show progress. But after some time, the copied folder appears and is now owned by the new (own) nextcloud.

Since it took so long, I guess it didnt move within the datacenter and caused external traffic. But at least I don’t need to download.
I guess thats already fine for that setup.

solved :slight_smile:

Okay, unfortunately it’s not fine.
The files are on my cloud, but the synchronization says they are not the same. (Different timestamp?) And starts downloading all my data to my client and overwriting existing files.
Which I do not want. It’s not the proper solution I’m looking for and I don’nt want all my files to be replaced.
Rather I prefer to erase Server data and upload afterwards from my clients. Cus there are other clients with the existing Version and I dont want to start a cascade of synchronisation of all my clients and backups…

Didn’t expect that part of my move from managed to self hosted would be that confusing^^
Any suggestions?
