DigitalOcean Droplet Issue with hard drive and sharing Owncloud
We’re having major major issues with the Owncloud system on DigitalOceans droplet.
Everything works fine with just 1 user. But as soon as a file directory becomes shared, mayhem happens!
Here’s whats happening:
Computer 1 (the primary) has a folder called Shared1 on the users hard drive. When Owncloud is attached to it, it uploads the whole folder to the owncloud system. When the user makes changes or adds/removes items/folders inside the Shared1 folder, it auto updates the owncloud. (so working as intended.)
However, when Computer2 user is added to the mix. Computer1 shares the Shared1 folder with Computer2. On Computer2, the user Syncs with Owncloud and proceeds to download the Shared1 folder content. However, someone happens before it gets completed. Then suddenly Computer2 is uploading their version of Shared1 back into Owncloud, and it re-writes the files.
If Computer2 is missing folders in Shared1, it will delete it from the folder on Owncloud, which in turn gets updated on Computer1, and the files get removed from Computer1.
So when testing this, we originally had a Shared1 folder with thousands of items, 8.4GB. Now its 4.6GB and half the files have vanishes from the original source.
Not only that, but in Owncloud interface (desktop APP) it shows 1.7 of 4.6GB in use (for Computer1) - the Owncloud size is 20GB.... its saying disk full.
On Computer2, it says 2..4 of 3.2GB used.......
Why can’t it read that the Droplet is 20GB?
