The client will read the OTHERS container to find folders shared by others and sync their contents to the local disk.

  • Shared folders will appear with a different icon 4h because it goes beyond the Tortoise icons, needs own icon
  • For each sharing account, display a folder below the "OTHERS" local folder. If the account contains only a single container (pithos), display the shared object below it directly. Otherwise display the containers, folders etc. 6h (remember the single container when synching)
  • The user will be able to select which shared folders to sync, in the same manner as other folders
  • Share permissions should be reflected by file system attributes and/or permissions, to prevent modifications that will be rejected by the server. Object level permissions can be enforced by the "read only" attribute. Folder-level permissions will probably need permissions. 6h
