Hi all! First of all, thank you for taking the time and effort to run such a great program.
I am no expert in networks or coding, yet I managed to set up and run everything pretty smoothly for several years thanks to your forum and guides.
Now, I have a bit of a noobie question. I have a NAS (synology) with two shared folders [A],[B] across four devices. Everything syncs with everyone so it’s a pretty simple scenario.
Now, we are getting more collaborators and I’m trying to figure out a way to selectively share some folders [i.e. A/folder/TheFolderIdLikeToShare] from the shared folder [A] with them, without them accessing the other files on the server. The goal would be to have the possibility to create a folder with a certain name, allowing the collaborators to see just inside that folder and keeping everything synced with the devices that have full access.
I tried automating the process using the .stignore rules: I re-shared the folder [A] with a rule to exclude all folders but the onles called with a certain name
And I shared it only with the collaborators. However, of course, the original .stignore was overwritten and it didn’t work. Stupid me.
I thing a workaround would be to set up the collaborator’s clients stignore with the same parameters sharing the folder [A] plain and simple, but I don’t like the idea that, should they somehow change their ignore preferences on their clients, they’d have full access to folder [A].
Perhaps there is a less contorted way to do this? Sorry if this is confusing and thanks in advance!
