How to share file to specific user

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Good day to everyone!

guys, I would like to ask something  about file sharing.

How can I make a shared folder in a network in which only a specific user can access my file? In short, there are different users that will access my shared file but they have different files to be accessed. How can I restrict my other shared files to those unauthorized users?

How to share file to specific user


Yes, there is a way that you can share files to a specific user, but you have to be in the same workgroup or else, you won't be able to share files with this user. Just follow these steps:

  • First of all, make sure that you and the other computer that you will be sharing files with, are on the same workgroup.
  • Go to your desktop and right click on My computer.
  • Then click properties.
  • Click on the computer name tab.
  • Click change.
  • Remember the workgroup name (You will be using this for network sharing).
  • Click start.
  • Click control panel.
  • Then click network set-up.
  • Some OS needs its file sharing to be enabled. So just enable them.
  • After following these steps, everything else follows.
