On permission of files

Let's take the following use case:

An user A wants to share a file inside a folder from its private files (my files) to some other user. The user A have to add the user B to his personal folder with some role. Doing so, the user B can access the folder. The problem with this is that all permission are automatically inherited to all files and subfolders and I didn't see a way to just avoid that. The inherit button refers to the parent folder and not the children elements. This means if I want to share only one file, I must proceed the inverse way, removing the permission to all files/folders, one-by-one, the user B can't access.

Now this is clearly not extremely user friendly.

Do you know how it's possible to achieve this goal without going though endless repetition task?

Thanks

Re: On permission of files

Do you need the "external" user to be able to see the folder?

If that's not a requirement, why not to simply give the user the permission only for the document?

When the permission is granted to the user, he can find the document by using the search.

Re: On permission of files

Well that's not required so this solution can work well.

Thank you!
