Sharing folders and files via link

Sharing folders via link doesn’t require from the other person to have an user account. The function will simply create a link, which can be then copied and sent (for example via e-mail) or published somewhere else.

To share a folder via link:

1. Choose the directory you want to share.
2. Click on the -Sign.

3. Click on Create Link.

4. A link is created which you can now copy and send (for example via e-mail) to another person.

 

To publish a folder:

The option make public creates a link which you can copy and send afterwards. In contrast to the previously mentioned link, this one only allows to read the content of the folder and exists until the owner of the folder deletes the link (since it is not possible to set an expiry date).

In order to create this link and to publish the folder, follow the above listed instruction but choose make public instead of create link.

To delete the link, simply click on Remove. The link will be deleted then.

 

To share a subfolder or a file:

1. Open a  Top Level Folder and click on the -sign next to the subfolder or file you want to share. Click on Create link.

2. A link is created which you can now copy and send (for example via e-mail) to another person.

 

You can choose whether the link should only allow the reading of the file/ subfolder or to also allow uploads.

 

By clicking on the settings, you can also choose an expiry date for the link, the number of allowed downloads and a password to further secure the file/ subfolder.
