Is it possible to have a password protected file on lima?

We were thinking of using Lima as a small office document storage solution however there are some files that would need to be kept private and away from everyone to access. Is it possible to have some folders password protected in Lima?

I would like to see this idea for a more personal use, i would love to have my lima set up as network attached storage to share with my roommates, but would really like to keep a folder just to myself

This would also help better protect files against device theft.

What's the answer can you limit access or not?

Hello everyone,

Thanks for your feedback!

Actually, this is an idea shared on the Lima Feedback Center where everybody can upvote it. This feature is not developed yet. The status of this topic is 'gathering feedback' because the Lima team would like to know what does the community think about it.

I hope that I have answered your questions.

Cheers!

I believe that this would be a good option for folders and files.

I have a similar sort of need. I'd like to make certain folders Not appear on some devices. For example, my work PC has huge .pst files in folders that I do not want to appear on my mobile. Similarly I do a lot of photo editing on my home PC and I do not want these folders to appear on my work PC, but I do want both to be backed up on Lima. So for example,

Work PC: folders A B C E H visible and on Lima

Home PC: folders A C D E F G H visible and on Lima

Android: folders B C D E G H visible and on Lima

Is this possible?

It's been something that has concerned me that my LIMA files are instantly accessible from my laptop through windows explorer. I can't find a way of logging out of LIMA and then requiring a password to log back in.

Hello, I would like to have 2 users in my file, ie with my girlfriend we use the device from 2 different macs and 2 iphones, we both have access to everything (she uploads many photos and I have many scientific articles), we agreed to use different folders for each one but, it would be great if we could have 2 users backup in the same cloud (the same hard disk), and even better if we could choose if only to see our files or some folder in common or shared by these 2 users. is this possible to do?
