After the user selects the "Create Link" option on the folder/file, the link creation window opens for the user.
The boxes next to the options of “preview”, “upload” and “download” should be checked depending on the permissions that the users who would access the link are intended to have. You can select the “Upload” option to create an upload link. Link receivers can upload to this area. The user should also check the “download” box to make sure that the file or folder could be downloaded from the link. The “Preview” box should be marked to ensure that the file could be viewed without downloading. Download and Upload can be selected at the same time. In this case, both the data in the folder can be downloaded and the people receiving the link can upload new data into this folder.
You should enter an upload limit regarding the size of files and folders that would be uploaded to the link. The valid amount entered by the user in the “Upload quota” field is determined as the quota of the link, and uploading over that limit is not allowed. Uploading up to the quota limit defined by the user is allowed. The system shows a warning message and cancels upload for any limit excess.
The Download Limit field is active when Download authorization is selected. Indicates the limit of downloads to be made via the link. A value of '0' represents unlimited downloads.
