The ability to limit searches of user accounts by account type to ALL, FULL, GUEST, or LIMITED is available in FileCloud Server version 19.1 and later.


As an administrator, for security reasons, you can restrict user searches so that your users can only search for user accounts that are assigned a specific level of access.

FULL

An account with full access has its own private cloud storage space in the "My Files" area.
