I created several url links(pointers to a file in a network directory) but Id like to distribute these files to individual folders so essentially when a user clicks the link it takes user to the folder where the file can be viewed or downloaded.

Questions:

1. what folder security can be implemented so that user can only see their own stuff in that directory?
2. Is this the best way to handle file distribution? or other way to do it?

3. what other ideas can be taken?

I think what you need to do (best way to do what you're asking for) is to assign each user their own folder. Put the files for each person on their own folder and tune that folder to only allow that person to read that folder (standard home folder setup).


There's no folder security or folder option that only shows items that are owned. The most you can do in that regard is show all items but only give read/write/execute access to the ones they own. This would have to be done on a file by file basis so it's more cumbersome
