I experienced an issue with Owncloud today where small files wouldn’t synchronize properly. The error message was
The server did not acknowledge the last chunk. (No e-tag were present)
I could not find a way around this issue. Some googling revealed this page on github. It appears I’m not the only one with this issue.
Deep in the thread, asinteg-daehn provided a workaround for the issue. It’s not ideal, but it works. Rename the file to something else, wait for it to sync, then rename it back.
Currently only found a WORKAROUND: Renaming of all affected files.
- open activity dialog of OC Client
- go to each affected file by double clicking on it’s error message
- rename it by e.g. a prefix “_” -> “_myfile.txt”
- resync succeeds
- now rename it back
- resync should succeed, too
This is very annoying, but a simple workaround.
It worked for me. Hopefully it will work for you too.
