WHS 2011 is showing folders without access to any user that has access to view media? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a user account for my Baseball team and also created a folder for pictures to be uploaded by one of the parents. I gave read\write access to that folder only. Then under the admin dashbaord I added that shared folder to the media library. Then when I log in with the baseball user account I see all the shared folders in the media library. You would think that if they didn't have access to the folders it would not show them in the media library. And the only option for the media libary is Included = yes\no. 

    I don't know if this is a security risk since the OS if for home use but it would be nice to share the site with family.

  • Media streaming is pretty much all or nothing.

    You can disable access to media streaming for that user and just give them access to the shares themselves.

  • I was hoping to be able to show off this cool new product that would allow guests to login and see and share pictures. There is another problem with the folders. Why can I not view an image when I click on it in the shared folder? Why would I have to download them first as opposed to having the same media functionality in the shared folders also. It is like there were two teams working on this project that did not communicate at all. The media part of it is more like an addin and somebody told the server team to not worry about common sense things like soemone might want to see an image as an option before having to download it.
