9.12. Sharing Individual Files/File Level Components

I need to share 2 files among different streams in the same repository. The files are in a folder which contains 100+ files but I only need to share 2 of them. I could make a component of the whole folder but I’d be downloading a lot of files which I don't need. Is there a way to do what I need?

PureCM only supports sharing folders. We intentionally did not support individual file sharing because it can get very complicated (I know when we used to use VSS we got in a real mess with file sharing). There is a big question in the CM community on whether the file sharing ability of VSS is a feature or a bug.

If this is a big problem we recommend you restructure your folders so the shared files are put in a different folder.
