Hi Muriel, is similar to google drive.
They give us 10GB of storage and they aren't google.
The folder permissions at the free level are a bit weak in that permissions
apply to a whole root folder.
That is to give our legal finance team a private folder, I had to create a
new folder off the root and give it the appropriate permissions. All
subfolders share permissions with the level 1 folder.

The links in box are kind of an all or nothing share. If you share a link,
anyone with the link can access the file. It is a special link to allow

I have been leaning more to NextCloud for file sharing. It is open source
and you can host it yourself or have someone host it for a fee. It has much
better permissions (unix strength permissions) and you can send out many
different links, password protected, time sensitive, etc. It also does a
lot more than just file sharing,; like calendars, recipe cards, world radio
stations, and much more. Turn on only the features you want.
unfortunately, my community is not ready for this change yet.

hope that helps.
