Upload via Android App

I installed Nextcloud a few days ago on a Ubuntu 20.04 VM for testing. The installation was no problem, the system works fine.
But there’s one issue: While uploading files via Nextcloud Android App, the data is stored in the Android storage folder (…/Android/media/com.nextcloud.client) additionally. For me, it makes no sense because I want to load data (e.g. photos) to the server to avoid data storage on my phone. But now the data is stored twice on my smartphone, once in my photo gallery and additionally in the local Nextcloud folder.

Is it possible to disable that functionality? I did not found any approach to solving that problem.

Thanks for your support.

Unfortunately that’s currently impossible. You can only select where the app should store its data, so that you can e.g. move it to your external sd card.
