@guyinpv Just create a share with an admin account that will never be deleted, then you can create a group for all of your users, and add the group to the share as shown in the pic. The folder will automatically appear for every one in that group.
You can also use the normal link sharing rules with this, so every user shares the same link.
This is exactly what I did, right out of the box.
But then I found this: https://apps.nextcloud.com/apps/groupfolders
So I created one of those. Then I found the features of group folders didn't work for me. For example the trash bin doesn't work at all for group folders.
So I went back to method #1. Created a share linked to a group.
Really guys, nothing weird going on here. Then all I did was select all the files in the one folder (group share), and used the button called "move" right in the interface to move them to the normal share, which seemed to work. And then I see all the duplicates. Here is a screenshot of how the web interface looks.

Whatever that long-winded post is up there, I have no idea. That's an incredibly convoluted way to do that.
I don't see how it's convoluted to want to move files and folders from one folder into another. You'd think a program meant for file management can do such trivial tasks without screwing up it's own cache or indexes or whatever went wrong.
Anyway, so I looked in the file system and there are definitely no duplicates there. It looks as it should.
I ran the occ commands
files:scan for all users, no errors reported. Then I ran
files:cleanup to clean the filecache.
I didn't see any other commands that seemed relevant.
Anyway, I logged in and duplicates still showing. Grrr.
Then I went in and deleted the previous group share folder (it is empty anyway) and then removed the group share plugin entirely.
At this point there are no clients connected, I'm only working in the web interface.
Others have seen this problem too: https://help.nextcloud.com/t/files-and-folders-shown-twice-in-web-ui/12416/2
Looks like OwnCloud was dealing with same issue as well: https://github.com/owncloud/core/issues/28018
