I’m guessing the Windows client should sync new files without having to have the owncloud website open. The files I’m trying to sync is “external storage” located in a local directory on the server but outside the webserver document root.
Nothing is synced no matter how long I wait. The owncloud windows client shows a green check and no errors. If I open a web browser and login to my owncloud, a pop-up immediately appears and all changes are synced. If I navigate off the owncloud site then sycing stops.
Steps to reproduce
- Install and configure client.
- Start client.
- Drink a beer and watching nothing happen.
- Log in to the owncloud web portal. Watch files sync.
