Just want to report some personal experiences.
Filerun is an excellent web-based file manager. However, I have always found support of the Nexcloud desktop app lacking. I was sure the problem lied more in Nextcloud than Filerun. To prove it, after months of troubleshooting and going back and forth between my Filerun installation settings and the Nextcloud for Windows desktop client, I took a gamble and installed the OWNCLOUD for Windows desktop client, which is currently at version 2.10.1 build 7187. It operates in a very similar manner, but I am guessing some optimizations that Nextcloud lacks. While I cannot speak for everyone, for me there has been a night and day difference between Nextcloud and Owncloud, with the latter offering:
- Faster sync speeds
- Better conflict handling, with the activity window actually showing what files were successfully uploaded, skipped, or errored out, with proper pathnames. This allows me to go back and troubleshoot individual files or folders more easily.
- Better resumption of incomplete / interrupted sync operations.
- Proper file permission support between windows and the unix-based structure of Filerun.
Bottom line, it's just better.
Ironically, the top of my owncloud window reports an unsupported version, as it is obviously running against Filerun which in turn reports itself as Nextcloud, but I find it quite ironic that an unsupported app works better - for me at least - than the supported one.
