New Drive, file sharing link 192.168.0.56 not gofile

Postby tony.w » Thu Dec 07, 2017 9:31 am

Have the new Drive installed and tried to create a file sharing link. The resulting link is direct to my NAS on the local network, with an internal address of 192.168.0.56:5001/g/x/929048719 etc. There is no Gofile nor an external link I can send someone. Anyway getting an external link to the file with the new Drive?

Did you create at least 1 Shared Folder on it? You cannot just share an entire disk like that.
Some people spent a lot of time writing the Help files, use it!
Do not expect serious answers if it can be found by searching for it yourself.

That is a totally different approach than sharing.

Drive seems to behave differently from Cloud Station? With cloud station I could create a sharing link from any Windows folder that then created a link via GoFile. The GoFile link was accessible from anywhere on the Internet. Drive creates a local LAN link, not a GoFile based link.

So a question, I do have a shared folder but I have nothing in it for now. Do I have to copy and duplicate every file file I want to share in that shared folder? Having more than one copy of a file is going to be a nightmare to keep current and manage. Drive is syncing my files fine from my Windows My Documents folder to the NAS, just like Cloud Station did.

In my case, I'm sharing one single file, I'm not looking to create new DS accounts or "teams" under Drive. With Cloud Station, I could right click on a file, create a GoFile sharing link and email the link for someone to download the file. Worked great up to last week then I upgraded to Drive and can no longer generate GoFile links to share files.
