About Nextcloud Desktop
Nextcloud Desktop is a desktop client developed by Nextcloud for Windows, macOS and various Linux distributions. The app enables users to specify one or more directories on their computer that they want to synchronize to the Nextcloud server. Once connected to the server, files are always automatically synchronized on the local PC.
Any file that users add, modify or delete in the synced folders on their desktop or laptop will show up, change or disappear on the server and all other connected devices. Moreover, the client allows users to right-click a file in the file manager and easily share it with other users, a public link or by email. Notifications of activities and events, like an incoming call, a comment on a file or a new folder are also possible within the app.
