Public files are files that are uploaded to a public Topic.
If you are a Member, you can still search files uploaded in a public topic that you are not participating in by setting your search filters to [All Rooms].
Private files are files that are uploaded to a private Topic, where only those who are participating in the Topic or the chat can view or search the files.
