There are four ways to share files and folders:
- Local users / groups (via local users)
- Other ownCloud / Datto Drive users (via Federated Cloud)
- Other users (via Share link)
- External storage (connection to other File Synch and Share services)
This article covers Local users and groups and Link sharing. For Federated Cloud, see the article Federated Cloud Sharing.
