Private and Public Content

Private and Public Content

Admin and Guest users can access content located on the G-CONNECT device via the File Browser. The device comes with two ways to secure content either by placing them in a Private area or a Public Folder.

Admin users have access to all content on the G-CONNECT device. They may place specific content into the Public folder in the File Browser. Any content that the Admin places in this Public folder is viewable by Guest users as well. All other content that is not placed in this Public folder is only viewable by the Admin user and is deemed Private.

Within the Public folder is a set of four default category folders: Photos, Music, Videos, and Documents, which is a good system for organizing content.
