With multiple user permissions, your site can be managed by the people you trust.

So, we’ve told you about our multiple user types, but what does that mean?  Well, we have created three unique types of users in your system: Administrator, Manager, and User.  This means that if you have the authority to create users (we’ll get to that in a minute), you can then label your new addition as one of these three roles.  With that said, let’s break down the roles a little further…


  • Can change their own name, email, and password
  • Can create links to public files or directories
  • Can download and install the PC backup software


  • Have all User capabilities
  • Can create, edit, or delete users
    • Can only edit and delete the users that they’ve created
    • Can set new users’ passwords to known values
    • Can view the activity section


  • Have all User and Manager capabilities
  • Can edit and delete users they haven’t created, even their own account
  • Can set other users’ home directories outside their own
  • Can grant file permissions that they themselves do not have
  • Can upgrade or downgrade site, which affects the monthly bill

Advanced Settings

  • Of course, with advanced settings, the allowances above can be customized for each user instead of using the three-role system.
