@Mario-Jakovina said in Nextcloud - how to restore many deleted files:
- We lost few subfolders (>700files) that we can't find in "Deleted files" which is terrible experience for us, and we will reconsider our usage of Nextcloud (I plan to open another topic for that). We recovered from backup.
In some ways, this is horrible. But in others, it's amazing. You are able to simply backup and recovery. Taking an external backup of most cloud services is hard or impossible. We had Microsoft "accidentally" delete loads of data from our OneDrive and neither could they recovery by rewinding nor did they have backups to recover from! And they were the ones that lost them while doing unauthorized work on our system!
So while it's awful that NextCloud doesn't have a convenient way to get back from a major loss, it's amazing that they have an inconvenient way to recover because not everyone does.
OK, I agree, backup of Dropbox is "hard or impossible" with multiple users.
I didn't thought about that advantage of Nextcloud. We will need to see how practical is "recovery from backup".
"Rewind" feature in Dropox is very practical to use. However, it is not backup.
