I ran my own owncloud server to share large folders between a team of about 10 people in the last year. The whole thing turned out to be a disaster. Constant error messages form the clients that aren't informational. Can't handle moving folders without creating tons of duplicates. I've seen files or folders disapearing mysteriously. "Deleted items" is barely usable, we only get a list of filenames without knowing their structure and where they were. File lists in the web interface have extra high padding so you can only see a limited number of files and have to spend your time scrolling. Moving to owncloud was a mistake, made me spend so much time debugging the sync errors, cleanup up the mess and searching through backups to recover lost files. Now we're finally in the process of moving to a commercial solution which I hope will be more reliable.

I guess my tech saavy is not enough for this wretched software. The install fails. Log in fails. Too many tweaks are necessary just to see if this atrocious software is even for you. There is either a glut of tech info that you have to be a coder to understand or there is absolutely nothing for a manual to walk someone through the process of setting this up using an existing website with unlimited storage. Either way, if you are not a coder...don't go this route!!!!
dozens of features, and all that for free!!
The update function never works. Its a huge effort to get the system over the 2GB single download limit and once you get it set it just seems to want to break. The UI is inelegant and simple things like moving files around, into folder or between folders, is just really a pain. And how you can screw up search so that, well yes it searches, but presents results in a completely mystifying manner. Most of the users we give accounts to putz with it for a while and drop it. Really, 95% drop it. We have stopped suggesting it to new users altogether. We have used owncloud for a couple of years, hoped it would improve, but it hasn't and we've given up any hope that it will improve in any significant manner any time soon, if ever.
Great software but doesn't feel really Business ready yet.
