Synology: shared folder in a shared folder

Hi

A client of mine created a shared folder on his NAS (Synology) and configured (WEB) outside access to its contents

Today he'd like to share a subset of the files contained in this shared folder with another group of users

Is it possible to create a shared folder within an existing (parent) shared folder ?

If not, is there a solution to satisfy his request ?

thanks
regards

Answer received on another forum:

You can't do a Shared within a Shared...but you could use permission restrictions to control what each set of users can open..so if the new users only needed a subfolder of the original share, the client would have to give them pass-thru rights of the top level and then whatever functional permissions to the target folder. They'd be able to see the folder names and any loose files in the top folder but would only be able to open the sub folders that they had access assigned to .

Or- the client could just create a new Shared Folder, populate it with data and assign new permissions just for the new users, so that the 2 shared folders are peers instead of parent-child objects-
