18.13 File Server Security

  • Filr honors and respects all trustee rights, file attributes, and folder attributes on all targeted file systems.

  • Filr never changes any rights or attributes on targeted file systems.

  • The only time file system rights are effectively bypassed is when a Filr user shares a file or folder with another user. In this case, the proxy user’s rights are used on behalf of the user receiving the share.

    For example, if a user with full file system rights to a folder shares Contributor privileges on that folder with another user, the other user has rights to create new files in the folder via the proxy user, as authorized by Filr.
