Changing file ownership
If there are a lot of files, you may find that this method works best when using the Nexcloud client, and simply moving the files on your desktop.
Start by logging on with the original user account.
- Share the folder with the new member of staff
New staff member
Now you can log on as the new user.
- Create a new folder.
- Move the contents from the shared folder to the newly created folder.
- Unshare the now empty shared folder.
Note that there is a built-in method of transferring ownership, but I've not been able to get it to work on my hosting platform. I think it's only for when you build Nextcloud as a server.
