I used to run contacts and calendar in tandium with google account, once I tested properly I ditched google for nextcloud. The only problem I have is that the default contacts app puts new contacts into google, unless you manually switch while adding.

Apart from that I setup my phone to auto upload photos and other files directly to nextcloud so if the worst should happen I don't lose any files.

Ok, i'm just going to admit to being lazy and ask, can you point me somewhere that will show me how to boot from the SD and run from a harddrive on the rock64.  When i was  using raspberrry pi's it was set up to boot from a usb drive, but i'm not that familiar with my rock64's yet.

P.S. I forgot to add i figured out what was filling up my SD card. I mirror my main drive to another drive with a cron job. My cron job was writing to my SD card instead of my backup hard drive.

I followed some direction in this forum a long time ago, but the short version is this:
* write an image to a sdcard and hdd
* using gparted rename the main hdd partition to be rootfs
* then in the fstab on both I changed the root partition to be rootfs
* edited the /etc/default/extlinux and /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf to be root=LABEL=rootfs

Haha, i said i was being lazy, guess i was being stupid too, I forgot all about uboot.  Got my nextcloud up and running on an 80gb harddrive i attached via a usb 3.0 adapter.  Thanks for the help,  there is virtually no traffic in this forum compared to the raspberry pi community it's nice to get a reply.
