In homepage we can read:

"The new virtual drive gives you access to files directly from your computer, without impacting all of your disk space."

Where is this feature? What is exactly?

Thank you.

I could not see this on our Mac computers. Checking the nextcloud forum it tells me to add showExperimentalOptions=true in nextcloud.cfg. Is this needed to be done smoewhere in FileRun?

The feature is not available for Mac at this time.

Is this something that would be added? If so, would it be in any time soon?

I don't know, the Nextcloud apps are developed by a third party. 

I understood the comment on the nextcloud forum wrong. nextcloud.cfg is part of the Nextcloud Client, not the server. Adding the string I wrote above to the clients settings made virtual files work on mac.

Thanks for sharing this. I am learning along with you.

Is the virtual folder working fine on your Mac?

They work but not as good as for Windows. On Mac and Linux all your files get .nextcloud after the extension. You need to open or sync that file for it to download. Sadly softwares that tries to open say movie.mp4 won't find the file as it's called movie.mp4.nextcloud while on windows it would automatically download it on request. But it's better than nothing.
