How can I set file/folder permissions for a user on external storage

Hi Guys,

Im jusst getting back into the Nextcloud scene and something has got me really stumped,

I’ve just created a new user and now need to set folder permissions for this user. I have a number of files folders uploaded on my server but I just need this user to only have access to 1 folder - He then needs read/write access to this folder. The folder name is disk2\scott (disk 2 is an extenal drive)

Can someone please give me a step-by-step on how to do this?

Thanks in advance

Does that mean, that the user should not need to have a full cloud account?

In that case, you could invite him as a guest (after installing Guests App)
You must invite him from the root of the filetree you want to share with him.
Every time, when this person logged into the cloud, he only sees the folders you share with him.

When the user should have a full cloud account, you could simply make the directory in the external storage available to him. See: Configuring External Storage (GUI) — Nextcloud latest Administration Manual latest documentation
