share a folder with external for uploading folder structure containing files

Is it not possible to share a (sub)folder that someone external to the organisation can upload a existing folder structure to, from their own local disk? We need to preserve the folder structure, not simply load the files. An FTP site would do this simply, but a trial with a shared folder only uploaded the files contained in the source folder, not the source folder tree.

Re: share a folder with external for uploading folder structure containing files

Hi @Cask 

You may be able to find good use of our [Standard User] licensing, which is designed specifically for external users. Please refer to the Helpdesk article links below for more information:

https://helpdesk.egnyte.com/hc/en-us/articles/201637164-Administrators-Power-Users-and-Standard-User...

However, [Standard User] accounts are limited to WebUI and Mobile access only. FTP and other Desktop-based applications are unable to accept connection requests from a [Standard User] account. 

Regards,
Nars
