ownCloud: Unshare A File

Follow these steps to unshare a file or folder.

If the File is Shared Internally

If you have shared the file with a member of the University it's possible to unshare the file to particular people, rather than needing to globally unshare the entire file.

  1. Hover your mouse over the file you want to unshare, and then click on Share from the options that appear on the right.
  2. A box will appear. Click on the x next to the person that you no longer wish to be able to access the file.Unshare Internal
  3. The file has been unshared.

If the File is Shared Externally

If the file has been shared outside of the University, it is not possible to selectively unshare it from people. Instead, you must unshare it from everyone.

  1. Hover your mouse over the file you want to unshare, and then click on Share from the options that appear on the right.
  2. A box will appear. Uncheck the Share link box.Uncheck Share link
  3. The file has been unshared.

As a workaround for selectively unsharing a file to people outside the University, consider changing the password protection, and then only informing those you would like to have access about the change.
