Admin Shares Files with users though users haven't download rights

Allow the download of files released by the admin for a particular user even though the user have no download rights.

My users can not see their uploaded files for privacy reasons, but I would like to upload certain files (Findings)

for the users, only those files should be able to be downloaded by the users!

You could do this:

- do not assign a home folder for the user

- give the user both upload and download permission

- setup two shares for the user, one that has download permissions, and one that doesn't

If the user's general permissions prevent him from downloading files, the user will never be able to download anything, and we can't add exceptions to this as it is not intuitive and it would lead to problems.
