Single Shared Folder vs Multiple Shared Folders

Today i noticed a security benefit for having multiple shared folders.

Some shared folders that don’t need to be mounted all the time or even at all will benefit from big increase in security.

These are basically “isolated” on the NAS and are not exposed to potentially compromised devices on the network.

Having all your data in a single shared folder will expose it even when you don’t need access to it because it resides next to frequently accessed data … thus you have to mount the entire “global” shared folder.
