Just installed a fresh Nextcloud 14, concluding some testing before putting it into production, including upload of large files through the Web UI.
Being impatient I started clicking around while waiting for a ~1Gb file to finish uploading, oblivious to the fact that uploads are interrupted when you do that.
So I had to start over again, and continued clicking around in another tab. Not keeping my tabs organized, this happended several times..
During attempt 5 of the upload I got curious as to how Nextcloud actually deals with interrupted uploads and started poking around in the file system and found the following:
Incomplete files are kept in
<user-folder>/uploads, and moved to
<user-folder>/files when complete.
However, aborted uploads, e.g due to "clicking around" don't seem to be removed automatically.
Here are my first 4 attempts to upload the file:
[email protected] .../admin/uploads# du -sh *
So yes, easy to clean up, but really annoying. Can this be automated?
