Egnyte is the only file services solution with granular subfolder permissions, designed to fit any existing file structure and permission hierarchy.
Granular Subfolder Level Permission Manage user permissions at any folder and subfolder level
A folder with inherited permissions clones access settings from its parent folder. This means any changes to permissions in the root folder will automatically apply to all subfolders.
Inherited Permissions with Manual Override
Subfolders inherit permissions from the parent, however individual access permissions can be added or removed as needed. Consumer-grade solutions don’t support this model.
This method blocks inheritance to specific subfolders, requiring administrators to selectively grant access as needed. When inheritance is disabled, changes to the parent folder permissions do not impact subfolders. This helps to avoid unintended access changes.
