Multiple Paths

SuAd 8 months ago updated by Vlad R 8 months ago 3

Hello, I know that there are other topics requesting this feature. I would like to ask if there is a workaround or a way to achieve the following:

I have a local server with two Hard disks (D:/ & E:/) and QNAP storage mapped to (F:/). how can I give access to 10 or 15 users to those three paths?

The only way that came to my mind is to install FileRun three times with the same users in each install will point to a different PATH. But this implementation has duplicated costs and a very bad user experience.

Any suggestions?

You can create symlinks/shortcuts of the other drives inside one folder and manage that folder with FileRun.

Thanks Vlad. it is workimg well. One more question: is it correct to use one PATH for all the uses, i mean to have the PATH as a common file structure share between all users?

As long as your intention is to have all users access the same files, there's absolutely no problem.
