Moving Photos from Google to OMV Nextcloud

    • Moving Photos from Google to OMV Nextcloud

      I recently installed OMV and Nextcloud. Thanks to the help from this forum, I now have it running the proper backup and am trying to transfer all of my photos from google (about 150gb worth) to a Nextcloud folder. I have downloaded all the files and now need to transfer them to Nextcloud. What is the best way to do this? Would Rsync be a good option? If so, what is the best way to figure out the correct folder path on Nextcloud?

      I think I tried that once, and you are correct. It doesn't work. Install the Nextcloud client on your PC and add them that way.

    • Or just upload them via the webUI...

      The client though would probably be easier, as you could do a mass copy/paste. Only issue I see here, is it appears files are stored both on the server and the client... I guess after they sync though, you could uninstall the client then delete the folder.
      Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.

    • you can copy and paste the files or rsync them into the folder structure as @macom suggested. You have to manually issue a rescan of your folder via occ command.

      1. docker exec -it nextcloud bash
      2. sudo -u abc php /config/www/nextcloud/occ files:scan --all (if this command does not work try sudo -u abc php7 /config/www/nextcloud/occ files:scan --all
