Managing Shares

Share volumes, and modify a Share volume.

access for them in this way.
4. In the Access Permissions section, check Read, Write, or both to set access to this Share for
each user. To remove a user, leave both Read and Write unchecked for that user. If you grant Read
and Write permissions to Everyone, the list of users is also cleared since all users will have access
to this Share. If you have created groups, you can also limit access for them in this way.
