When you first sign up a Morro account, the system creates a default Storage Pool (GlobalPool1) and a Share (GlobalShare1) for you automatically. You may create additional Pools and Shares depending on your storage and file sharing needs.


The "File System" Page shows you the mapping of your Cloud Storage Group, Pools, Shares and User Permissions. The page is a representation of the relationship between the Cloud, the Pools, the Shares and how the Users access the shares. In the File System View, you can customize your storage configuration by adding Storage Pools, Shares and assigning Share Permissions to Users.


Click on the "File System" tab on the left to expose the "File System" Page. You should see the default cloud storage group called "Morro Cloud", the GlobalPool1 and the GlobalShare1.

A Storage Pool is an abstract concept with a collection of shares with the same set of properties. The properties of a Pool consist of its name and the version control for that Pool. You can only delete a Pool when all Shares associated with the pools is removed.


A Share is the top level folder on a network. Shares belong in a pool. Share offers an easy way to share files with others who would like to collaborate with you on the same files together. When you create a Share, and allow other people to access it, the shared files will appear in their Share. You can create a restricted share or just a common Share where other users may take or put files in the Share. Once it is in the Share, the files will replicate in all Shares regardless of the device location. For example, if you have multiple devices, they can be independent of geographic location.


Every Share have a mount point. The mount point is similar to a network folder. And you access the Share in the same way you do with a network folder.


Below is what your File System page looks like.
