I installed nextcloud on my raspberrypi 3 using this link. Everything is working pretty well except I don't like the UX of having all the extra storage space coming from the "External Storage" add-in, since it means that everyone now has to know to put all of their files in a designated folder.
It seems like I should just be able to tell nextcloud to use the external harddrive as the data-directory location (without the external storage add-in) and all will be well and good… and it seems like in theory that works fine. But, since it's installed as a snap, it seems like the snap doesn't have access to that part of my filesystem and thus it doesn't work.
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. Should I mount the harddrive inside the snap's writable area? Is it possible to give the snap access to the harddrive?
