Raysync Transmission: Problems and Solutions to File Sharing

In July 2018, the popular file-sharing service DropBox gave Northwestern University ‘access to project-folder-related data’ over a two-year period from about 400,000 users across 1,000 universities.

Technical security of such electronic file-sharing systems has been breached and management failures have occurred from time to time. Whether it is for commercial purposes or other reasons, when it comes to file sharing services, we need to think about more than security.

There are other aspects to file-sharing that should be considered, namely: 1. privacy of the sharing mode 2. the geo-location of your data 3. the file sharing restriction

The file-sharing mode can be divided into two types, one is classical mode, the other is the guest mode. In the classical mode, the users has the right to manage the folders and files as the administrator. Open the guest account and set the sharing mode to guest only. In guest-only mode, the user's user name and password are only used to verify whether the user has permission to access the computer, and the operations on files and folders are performed as guest accounts. Although only relative aspects of guest mode are accessed, this mode is not convenient for fine control of permissions.

One of the important aspects to choose a file-sharing provider that should be considered is the geo-location of your data. The reliability and cost of the file transfer over long distances should also be considered. For many enterprises, it doesn't matter on which disk the business data is stored in the world, but unified management and comprehensive analysis need to take into account the importance of ensuring the integrity and security of shared files when exchanging personal or confidential data between continents and countries.

The security restriction reveals in two places of file-sharing. The first place is that when sharing is enabled, the corresponding account needs to be assigned the right to access this computer from the network. Account A has added the right here, so when sharing is enabled, the user name A can be entered to open sharing, otherwise, it will be prompted that there is no right to access network resources. Therefore, any problem that involves not being able to access the host because of permissions is a problem of sharing permissions. The second place is NTFS permissions for shared folders and their subfolders, which are set in the security tab of the folder's properties. The permissions control a user's operating permissions on folders and files. Therefore, any problem that files cannot be added, deleted, or modified is set here.
