I will be using GD as a backup solution from a school server where some folders are shared but others are private.

Staff users will be granted full control to all GD folders, breaking privacy on the private folders.

I wonder if is there a way to protect personal folders, otherwise I won't be able to upload and synchronize private folders.

  • It would seem you're looking to use the wrong tool for the job. A shared folder shares all of the folders beneath it as well. While you can share a subfolder with more people, you can't share it with fewer. You'll need to look for a different solution. – ale Sep 14 '16 at 14:55
  • Probably if using GD, I will synchronise only common folders. Are you aware of a sync tool similar to drive that will retain folder/user permissions? – Riccardo Sep 14 '16 at 14:59
