Sharing files via MacOS on local networks is easy, providing Time Machine Volume for other users. As long as you give everyone full access to your Mac or lock them out completely. Macs only allow sharing users to see your main account and other accounts on Mac separately and can be accessed by different types of guests.
There are three types of accounts in MacOS via the User and Group Preferences panel:
Standard, for users who require a high level of permission on Mac, such as installing updates on MacOS or installing apps for all users.
Administrator, who has all the necessary permissions throughout the system for all tasks
Sharing only, which can only access a Mac via file sharing over a network
To create only one sharing user:
Open it Users and groups Priority panel
Click the lock icon in the lower-left corner and authenticate yourself with Touch ID on equipped Macs or by entering the administrator password.
Click the plus (+) sign at the bottom of the user list.
From the New Account list, select Partnership only.
Create a name that displays the user, account name, password and code.
Click Create user.
You can now use this account in the Sharing Preferences pane.
Open it To flood Priority panel
Select File sharing In the service list.
Shared Folders Select as a folder or volume in the list of shared folders. You can also drag the item from the finder or click the plus sign to select a folder or volume.
With a shared item selected, you can apply it to the shared user in the user view. Click the plus sign, select the user and click Select.
The user now appears, and you can set permissions, in which read and write, read only, and write only (drop boxes). (The last item allows someone to drop items into a folder but cannot see the contents of the folder.)
You selected them while taking changes. In the example shown in the picture I created a user named “GIF User”, and set up the user to access time machine volumes on my desktop Mac. Other users on my network log in using that user’s credentials and I don’t have access to any of the other files, but the automatic time machine can back up.
Other people on the network can connect to your Mac via this account by selecting or selecting a list of locations in the sidebar. Go> Network To find and double the entry for your Mac in Finder. When they are found in the back, in the upper-right corner of the window, you can click as a connection. For more recent versions of MacOS, then click Continue. Enter the credentials you provided to view the available certificates and folders behind them. They can then double-click on any items to mount and make them available on the Mac.
