Cells does not recognize files/folders created directly on storage

When I create files or folders directly on Cells storage and even if I run
cells admin resync --datasource=personal
afterwords (both with cells started or stopped) I get Resync Triggered but when I access my area the folders I have created do not appear there.

Furthermore when I do an Upload files or folders are create on cells but upload never finishes and they never appear on the storage.

I am using Cells 3.0.6 with a reverse proxy setup under WAMP with Apache 2.4.41, PHP 7.3.13 and Mariadb 10.4.13 in a Windows 10 server.

Any help is most welcome


Please note that in v3, the datasources are created by default using a flat structure. Meaning that we only keep the file structure as an index in the database and files are stored as objects on the disk. A resync will not do much. To be able to use structured datasource that keep in sync the data structure on the disk and the database, you can install cells using the CELLS_DEFAULT_DS_STRUCT=true environmment variable, or create a new datasource in the Cells console and select the Import Existing Data option.

As for the upload that never finishes, do you have any specific error, either in the browser or in the logs that could be helpful ?

I looked in the cells folder and I could not find the file

Is there a way of fixing this problem?
