Windows client 3.2 VFS "Error writing metadata to the database"


I was testing the new NC clieant on my Windows 10 and I get an error everytime. Anyone got an idea?


Thank you! :slight_smile: Would be great to get this working!

moved this question to a new topic as the other thread was just for information and not for solving problems.

I’m afraid we’d need a bit more detailed informations here.

What kind of information? Ist the nextcloud error message not helpful/meaningful?

@Cyrus_Rondolos I have the same issue:
Win10 Client, NC 3.2.0 connected to NC21.0.1 server running on debian.

Please check the client logfile. I have the same issue with large photo folder, and in my logfile it shows always when this error occurs:
