Sharing a file or folder with a GSE Affiliate

Sharing: Client

A common scenario

You need to share a large confidential data file with a colleague who does not already have access to it. The share function will allow you send it as a link, thereby eliminating the need to attach a big file it to an email. 

Note that this function allows you to share with HGSE affiliates, not non-HGSE affiliates.  

To share a file or folder using the XDrive Client, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click the folder or file and select Sharing... from the menu
  2. If the person or group who you want to share with isn't on the Share with users... list, click Add...
    Note:
     if the person is on the list, skip to step 7 below
  3. In the Search for field, enter the person's name 
  4. Click Search
  5. Click on the person or group desired in the Users found field
  6. Click Add select users
  7. Highlight the name or group you just added and select the desired level of permissions in the Permissions field
  8. Click OK
