Not Syncing Folder Deletions

If anything below is incorrect, let me know - first time posting :slight_smile:

Expected behaviour

When I Delete a folder, It should sync to the Web Interface.

Actual behaviour

When I Delete a folder, I get no errors in the log from both the client or the server, Folder does not get deleted in the web interface.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a Folder, It syncs to the Web Interface
  2. Delete that folder, It deletes locally but not on the web interface

Server configuration

Operating system:
Lubuntu 20.04

Web server:

As per Docker image (webhippie/mariadb:latest)

PHP version:

ownCloud version:

Client configuration

Client version: 2.7.6

Operating system: Windows Server 2012 R2

OS language: English

Installation path of client:

  1. Client logfile: Output of owncloud --logwindow or owncloud --logfile log.txt

  • Unsure how to locate?-


We improved the logging in our upcoming 2.8 release.
Could you try to reproduce the issue with and provide a new set of logs.


03-02 09:46:57:601 [ critical sync.csync.vio_local ]:	CreateFileW failed on E:/Share/12 OwnCloud/Lindsay Civil Construction/FOLDER TO DELETE

we should now see the windows error, why it failed.

You can also use which allows to be installed in parallel to your productive setup.

Hey Hannah,

Appreciate the update - Actually updating to 2.8 has resolve the issue. Deleting files either form the server OR the web interfaced now syncs correctly to all devices.
