Accessing photos from Spaces in NextCloud is very slow

Hey guys,

I have a DO space mounted as external storage on my NextCloud install that is also hosted on a droplet on DO.

I am primarily using Spaces as a backup storage for my photos because it’s cheaper than Block Storage.

When I try to access the Space using Cyberduck or the DO Web UI, it works fine but when I access the Space via the NextCloud client, it is insanely slow. The API call to list the photos takes about 5 minutes to complete. I have about 6.6GB of photos in there (approx. 600 items).

I’ve researched a bit online but haven’t been able to find a solution to this. Can anyone help? Thanks!
