To Manage Share Folders
Only the Network Storage System's administrator can create shared folders. However, within a shared folder, users who have access to that shared folder can create other folders (directories) as well as files.
A shared folder can be accessed by many Users, and a User can access many shared folders. If a folder within a shared folder is also a shared folder, then all users with access to the outer share will ALWAYS have the same access to the inner shared folder.
Click Shared Folders and click Edit to manage share folder.
