I just signed up for eCloud and I’m primarily using it to transfer some data from my old phone to the new one. I imagine I’ll be using it more in the future.
The only annoying thing is that I can only access ecloud via web browser. I can’t seem to find an app that will allow me to manage by cloud data without a browser. Am I missing something? Is there an ecloud app that I just haven’t found?
Thanks for the suggestion! I was able to install DAVx5 and log-in to my account. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to support data files, just syncing contacts, calendar and tasks. I will mostly be using the cloud for files, so I’ll have to keep looking.
Thanks for all the tips! NextCloud is exactly what I was looking for, and I like that I can access it from the file directory. I have most of the automatic syncing turned off already. I just want to easily access certain files from my computer and also transfer from my old device. Thanks for the help, loving /e/ so far!
Whatever you expect, Files will only have access to the files in your /e/ cloud account if you install the NextCloud app.
/e/ could have chosen to make that file sync functionality part of /e/ OS, by including the NextCloud app (or their own fork of it) -in the same way they included a fork of DAVx5 to handle Contacts and Calendar sync, and a fork of NextCloud Notes for Notes sync - but they chose not to. So if you want that functionality, you have to install it yourself.
That did the trick! Thanks. I use nextcloud on my still g**gled phone but I thought there must be a stock way to do it and was sure I saw a screenshot of the files app with other sources in. Now I have it in my files app.
Hello, I don’t see ecloud files in my files app and not the nextcloud logo on the left side of the screen in files app. I want to sync single files to ecloud, like keepass file and etc. Is this possible? Can’t find anywhere settings for file syncing to ecloud with nextcloud app.
I tried to uninstall and reinstall nextcloud from fdroid, but it didn’t work. All the settings in ‘accounts’ are on and syncing.
I noticed, that when I add file on nextcloud app 'Documents", it will appear on my files app ‘documents’, so the connection works (but not the other way around, what would be great). Pictures syncing and everything else works. Only problem is, that files app doesn’t recognise Nextcloud account.
I did reinstall whole system after the first OTA update to android 10 was bit buggy. I flashed the stable version, which was android 8, and then OTA update to android 10 again. Now still few bugs remain, but phone is useable. There was no stable android 10 pacakage yet on /e/ website.
We will see what happens with S9 in the future. Android update didn’t go as planned by eteam.
