Tresorit offers easy ways to share files or folders. Shared folders are ideal for groups of people who would like to collaborate on the same files together.
The smallest shareable element is a file, but you can share folders within your tresors and your tresors as well. Working in shared tresors will keep collaborators continuously up to date. If you share a tresor or a folder with other people: its files will appear in their Tresorit folders just as they do in yours.
Any member of the shared tresor can add, delete, or edit files. Consider Tresorit Premium, Solo or Business plans for the ability of limiting others’ access and controlling what they can do with your files.
