Just getting started with Owncloud and have a couple of questions about deleting files from an external cloud site. In this case its Box.com, but it could be others.
When I delete files from the Owncloud GUI for the external shared storage, they appear in the deleted items area. This process takes a long time if there are several GBs of data. Wondering about what is really happening. If I delete 20 GBs of Box.com files, are 20GBs of file being downloaded to my server to show in the deleted files area? Since the process doesn't provide a progress indicator it's hard to see what is actually happening.
I had to rebuild my entire setup because I ended up with locked files and directory mismatches - because I wasn't aware of the delete area process, and the time it actually takes to finish a deletion process. I was deleting things twice or three times. The server was running at high CPU, and there was almost a full TB of data being deleted, and moved around, and being copied - all at the same time. Now I do one thing at a time and let each job finish. But it takes a long time still.
