File and folder sharing allows you to provide public or private access to files stored in FileCloud Server with various levels of access privileges.

While files can easily be shared simply by emailing someone your file, sharing files in FileCloud allows you to:

  • Keep track of who you have shared a file with
  • Add comments about the file
  • Monitor file versions
  • Control changes people make to the file or file by setting a combination of permissions to read, view, modify, copy, or delete it
  • Have an allocated amount of personal file storage in a common file system

You can share a file in many different ways.

(lightbulb) Some permission options may vary depending on whether you share a file or a folder.

In the User Portal, you can click on the root folder, My Files, and select Share. This is a security threat and should not be allowed.

In FileCloud Server version 19.1 and later:

  • In the User Portal, when you click on the root folder, My Files, you will no longer have the Sharing option!
