Sharing a Folder

If you want to give access to a folder to your friends or family, you have to share it. In the Share configuration settings, it is possible to grant other users extended rights to edit and delete in the shared folder. The password protection, the share duration and the user permissions can be adjusted anytime.

If you share a folder, the recipients of the share link can access the folder in your File Storage and download the files.

  1. Select the folder you want to share.
  2. In the Actions menu, click Share.

    Info:

    If you have already shared a folder and want to make changes in the Share configuration settings, click Edit share.

    A window with the share link and the option for further share configuration appears.
  3. Click Share configuration.
