Use weblinks to transfer files or folders from any of your linked storage sources with others. Weblinks can be used by anyone, including people who have not signed up for odrive, and on any device with a web browser.
Click on "Copy share link to Clipboard" which will enable you paste the weblink into an email, browser or anything that can accept a pasted link.
Any one who receives the weblink will be able to view and download the files.
The content associated with an existing weblink can be modified so the shared user can view and download any modified or added files.
How many times can a weblink be used?
Normally, a weblink may be accessed only 50 times. If the creator of the weblink is a free plan user, additional visits to the weblink will be blocked and the creator will receive an email notifying him or her that the limit has been reached.
An odrive Premium plan user does not have this access limit.
Users with a premium subscription will see that the access limit is lifted from their accounts. However, it is best to speak with us regarding your planned usage of the feature if there is any question of whether or not it falls under the feature's intended uses.
Weblinks, by nature, are public. They can be accessed by anyone with the link.
odrive enables you to protect the weblink with a password you create. Click on "Share Link" and enter in your desired password.
By default, your shared weblinks live forever.
odrive enables you to automaticaly expire the weblink after a set period. Click on "Share Link" and set your preferred expiration.
Go to "My odrive" and click on "Sharing" to view all your existing weblinks that you've created.
For any weblink, you can modify the password and expiration settings.
You can also delete the weblink.
You can turn any folder in your odrive into a shared folder. Invite others to work collaboratively on those files. In odrive, a shared storage folder is also known as a "Space".
Create a Space by going to your My odrive and selecting the "Spaces" tab above. Click on the "+ Share Storage" link.
You then can name the shared storage folder by entering something into the "Subject" field. Then pick the folder you want to share. Finally, invite other users by entering their email addresses.
The invited user will receive an email to become a Member of the shared storage folder.
Once the invitation is accepted, the Member will see the shared storage as a folder on her desktop.
Spaces are shared storage folders, which means anybody invited to them can add, edit, and delete files in them.
