sharing

Sharing is the joint use of a resource or space. It is also the process of dividing and distributing. In its narrow sense, it refers to joint or alternating use of inherently finite goods, such as a common pasture or a shared residence. Still more loosely, "sharing" can actually mean giving something as an outright gift: for example, to "share" one's food really means to give some of it as a gift. Sharing is a basic component of human interaction, and is responsible for strengthening social ties and ensuring a person’s well-being.
Apart from obvious instances, which we can observe in human activity, we can also find many examples of this happening in nature. When an organism takes in nutrition or oxygen for instance, its internal organs are designed to divide and distribute the energy taken in, to supply parts of its body that need it. Flowers divide and distribute their seeds. In a broader sense, it can also include free granting of use rights to goods that can be treated as nonrival goods, such as information.

    Hi everyone, on my linux machine (Mageia) I would like one user (let's say, user1) to be able to access one directory on the NAS (DS220j). This directory should be mountable by user1. Do I need to define a user named user1 on the NAS (in DSM) ? Or shall I create another user (e.g. user1_NAS)...

    I have noticed that when I share a folder via a public link in Synology Drive 2.0, videos placed in this folder cannot be viewed by users when double-clicking them. A double-click on the video by a user (without a Drive user account) (in any browser on macOS at least) triggers a dialogue to...

    Info pwndrop to hide login screens when sharing files

    While sharing files using DSM’s “Share” that creates a link to be sent to the recipient is convenient, if someone deletes the “share” portion of the URL and tries the FQDM, they’ll land in your DSM’s login screen. I didn’t like that. For example, if the shared link looks like...

    Security advice when sharing files?

    In the past I've had a domain pointed at my DiskStation (DS1019+) and accessed DSM, Drive etc. via the domain name/HTTPS, but now I have sensitive work files on there and don't want to expose the Synology to the internet. So I no longer use the domain name and just use a VPN to access DSM...
