Article Summary

You can create a public link to any synced folder and file and share the link with anyone. Clicking the link provides access to the folder or file in the portal Cloud Drive. You can also send email attachments as public links using a plug-in for Microsoft Outlook, as described in Sending Email Attachments via the Cloud Drive.

Note: The file cannot be a Caching Agent stub. If the file to share is a stub, open it first.

To create a public link:

  1. In Windows File Explorer, right-click the folder or file and select CTERA Agent > Copy public link.

    The Copy Link window is displayed.

  2. Configure the link.

  • In the Share as drop-down box, configure the file permissions as Preview Only, Read Only or Read/Write.


    Note: This icon can vary depending on default permissions level. For example, the preview icon is displayed for the Preview Only permission level.


    Preview Only share recipients are able to view the file using the portal’s integrated document preview server. Users with this permission are unable to download, copy, or print the file.

  • Click the image.png icon to configure an expiration date for the link, or accept the default expiration after 3 months.
  1. Click Copy Link.

    The link is copied to the clipboard and you can paste it in a message. The link has the format: https://portal_address/invitations?share=7b424ee4a3c49bfa00b3
