OwnCloud can’t have two virtual folders inside one another?

Expected behaviour

Having more than one virtual folder inside each other

Actual behaviour

if my “downloads” folder has a virutal folder like “downloads/compressed” I get a warning if I try to make a “virtual” folder for just “downloads” (if I create downloads/compressed first).

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a virtual folder inside your downloads folder on PC
  2. Try to create a new virtual folder at the root folder of your previous virtual folder
  3. You’ll get a warning that you can’t create a virtual folder where an existing virtual folder exists in a LEVEL UP. E.G. downloads/compressed, if you try to make one for just “downloads” where there is a virtual folder for “downloads/compressed”.
