Unable to share subset of directory

synobooks 4 years ago updated by Tom 4 years ago 1

When I tried to add a subset of directory under the books shared directory, it wouldn't allow me to add another user.


Shared directory:

/volume1/books/morebooks User1

/volume1/books/morebooks/read User2

when trying to add permissions for user2, the following error appears:

Preferences could not be modified.
Directories can not contain one another.

Why can't I only share a subset of folders to user2?

Managing permissions on subdirectories would have added too much complexity, both on code and user side.

It just wasn't worth the trouble.
