Currently reconstructing our in-house @nextcloud instance after yet another Seagate drive abruptly died.

It was already a stressful day *before* that happened; .

(Why aren't there instructions for how to rebuild when you have the data and the files, but not NextCloud's file structure. None of the obvious stuff seems to work; it looks like I have to start over with an empty fileset and then synch all 600+ GB via the client. :-/)

NextCloud was on FLOSS Weekly recently. Paraphrasing:

- (Do you handle backups?)
- (Just backup your Linux.)

Your experience shows why this is problematic.
