As the Filr administrator, you can enable or disable user access to personal storage. Personal storage includes all files and folders in the My Files area that are not associated with the user’s Home directory if they have one.
IMPORTANT:This setting affects only users whose accounts are synchronized to your Filr system via LDAP. Users who are created locally (as described in Section 18.2, Creating a New Local User) always have access to personal storage in the My Files area.
Guest users and external users never have access to personal storage in the My Files area.
Filr allows you to access, share, and collaborate on files that are in two key locations:
Users can upload files directly to the Filr site for personal use or to promote collaboration. Users can create folders to better organize files. For more information about how users can upload files, see
Adding Files to a Folder in the Novell Filr 1.1 Web Application User Guide.
Files and folders that are located in a user’s My Files area are visible only to that user by default. Users can make files and folders available to others by sharing them, as described in
Sharing Files and Foldersin the Novell Filr 1.1 Web Application User Guide.
Unlike Net Folders or Home folders, files in users’ personal storage in the My Files area are not synchronized from an external file system.
Files in Net Folders: Novell Filr gives users easy access to folders and files on the corporate file system. Corporate files can be files on a home drive, files on a mapped drive, or files on a remote server. Filr gives users seamless access to these files, regardless of their location. The corporate files that users have access to are defined by the Filr administrator.
In Filr, users access these corporate files by clicking Novell Filr 1.1 Web Application User Guide.in the masthead. For more information about Net Folders, see the
