    I'd like to ask if it's possible to give some users permissions on Files section but not on all folders and files. I explain why this would be very useful. Lets say that under folder images users upload files in a directory structure they decide. With no giving them permissions on these folders they cannot manage them. If they have permissions on all CMS folders then this becomes very dangerous (e.x. by mistake delete or rename web.config). I was searching for a way to grant such access but I couldn't find anything. Is there any other way to restrict access in some folders and leave full access only to administrator role?

    Best regards

    Hello Vagelis Kretsimos,

    Currently the only way to manage Files permissions is from Administration -> Permissions ->ManageFiles. You can select a specific role and allow or deny permissions on Files section for it.

    But unfortunately, it isn’t possible to restrict the access only for some folders. We will implement this functionality in one of the upcoming releases.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
