Sorry to tag on to this but I got the instructions for Synology and still get not get it to work. However I kept trying and it does work for protecting supb folders
https://www.synology.com/en-us/knowledg ... /privilege
1. I had all my sub folder (Child) under 1 Main folder.
2. So the users logged into Main Folder and 10 child folders were under that. I never could get only one user to work on that so I did something else
3. I created a new folder outside of the Parent called Folder1
4. I added 2 new users: User1 and User2
5. I gave both of them permission to the new folder Folder1
6. From the Parent I copied to folders that also had Child folders to Folder1
7. Now the instruction work from the link above except if your ignorant as I am there is a little quirk that I did not catch
8. Of course you are logged in as admin
9. Go to Folder1 and open it. I have two folders int there
10. Highlight the first one and click the action button then go to properties
11. The trick that I did not know is you have to make the user for this folder User1
12. Go to Create now for this to work User1 has to already have permission to enter Folder1
13. Select User1 from the User of gorup
14. Of course the type is going to be allow
15. Apply to: I selected All
16. Admin I left blank
17. Read and write I gave them what I wanted
18. Hit OK
19. Now for the next folder so User2 can have access to the next folder that you do not want User1 to have access to you have to do the same thing
20. User1 can only get in the one folder and of course the child folders in that first folder. User1 cannot get into an folders except the one I gave permission to
21. User2 cannot get into the folder that User1 has access to.
To make this happen and being ignorant as I am I had to start thinking differently or looking at the directions with a open mind and try to fill in the blanks.
Any way it does work. I did not try to hide them yet but I have permissions on child folders now.
Thanks to this forum and Synology I accomplished something.
