    So I have a 2tb HDD that I store a lot of video content on that my video editors can easily, but securely access. Instead of uploading to various things like google drive, I think hosting them on my computer for the editors to access will be easier for everyone.

    But what is the best & most secure way to offer them access to a certain folder on one of my home HDD's?

    I would say perhaps WebDAV with execute verbs disabled but I am digging my Nextcloud setup, a fork of ownCloud.

    Hmm, shit I'm not familiar with any of that. I'm going to have to do some serious research.

    I would recommend creating SFTP and it will cover your needs.

    depends what you define as secure , if you mean just limited people to access some files then creating accounts with passwords on the NAS would work as well

    Nextcloud works fantastic. Been running on my home servers for over a year now, syncing my keepassxc db and files between all my devices.
