WebDAV keep the files offline Windows 10

windows

#1

I have a laptop and i’m using the WebDAV feature to have Nextcloud as a network disk on Windows 10 Pro. I want to keep the files so I could reach them offline, but when I connect to the internet, it will synchronize to the server.


#2

Use the nextcloud client :wink:


#3

webDAV is pretty much online… client is the way!


#4

Combine with rsync. Or Can you combine with the integrated Windows Backup? Never tried.


#5

but use it with care!


#6

And nc 9 :wink:
So it doesnt matter.


#7

That would be nice!
:wink:

Did you run the zero-byte-file-finder command on your NC server?

find $nextcloud_data_dir -size 0 -type f

How you see no problem :wink:


#9

This is not the data dir.

It’s here:
grep datadirectory ~/config/config.php


#10

Whats your problem now? I have no corrupt files and Win10 Client works fine for me :wink:


#11

You can use odrive.
It allow yo to sync files to use them offline and sync when you delete or modify them.
You can use several cloud platforms and sftp/ftp/webdav accounts as well.


#12

Windows WebDAV support has been awful for a while now, not that it was ever great. I’ve used vanilla WebDAV (not NextCloud or OwnCloud) and still had plenty of issues.

Stick with the client.
