Download from server not working

Expected behaviour

I would like owncloud to detect new files not only in the Windows data directory but also on the Linux side and sync accordingly.

Actual behaviour

Only changes on the Windows side are recognized. Changes on the Linux side go unnoticed.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Copy a file to the linux data dir
  2. the file does not appear on the PC
