The permissions for the drive need to be set to the person you have listed as the forced user in smbshared.conf.

This is one of those cases where it is easier to fix it from the command line if you know how and as an old guy I keep forgetting.


Several posts have info on doing it and also Joe has a couple videos on permissions.

I found this....
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
/dev/mapper/mint--vg-root /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1
# /boot was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=84852069-a27b-4d09-8707-d7844bfd9707 /boot           ext2    defaults        0       2
/dev/mapper/mint--vg-swap_1 none            swap    sw              0       0
LABEL=Elements /mnt/Elements auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0
LABEL=HP\040Launcher /mnt/HP\040Launcher auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,noauto 0 0
LABEL=HP /mnt/HP auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0

But I'm not sure what it means and have been scared to fool with it.

That is your fstab file it just tells linux how and where to mount drives when it starts up, looking at it this part is what was written when you installed linux initially,

# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
/dev/mapper/mint--vg-root /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1
# /boot was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=84852069-a27b-4d09-8707-d7844bfd9707 /boot           ext2    defaults        0       2
/dev/mapper/mint--vg-swap_1 none            swap    sw              0       0


and this part was when you told it to automount additional partitions,

LABEL=Elements /mnt/Elements auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0
LABEL=HP\040Launcher /mnt/HP\040Launcher auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,noauto 0 0
LABEL=HP /mnt/HP auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0


the first section is by UUID the second by LABEL and there are other ways to mount them also that have pros and cons for mounting options, but as you can see the file can use multiple formats within a single file.
As for fooling with it, unless it's not mounting stuff you want it to there is no reason to do so.



It's usually something dumb so I'm going to ask are you trying to fix the permissions from the machine that is mounting the drives or from a different one?
