A share archive is a container file
with a unique name and a version date.

your share archives.

Download of share archives is possible via webbrowser or F*EX client.
Upload of share archives is possible only via F*EX client, because a webbrowser cannot create archives.
When you upload a share archive a new version is created.
Only the owner can delete share archives.

A share URL comprises the triple [F*EX server, share owner, share user], which we call for short a "share".
A share owner is also called a F*EX full user.
Every share owner has a special share named "." in which all his archives for all his share users are stored.
