    • Allow Different Name in SMB Share than the name of Shared Folder

      New

      In OMV 3, I was able to create Shared Folders with a name (ie. Documents_HD1, Documents_HD2, etc). Then in the SMB Shares tab, I was able to create a Share with the Name "Documents" and point it to one of the Shared Folders.

      In OMV 4, it looks like the Name field is missing from the SMB Shares tab. Now, the SMB Share name is always the Shared Folder name.

      Can the Name field be re-added to that we can customize the Name of the share?

      This is not possible because this behavior is wanted and by design.

      I must not fear.
      Fear is the mind-killer.
      Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
      I will face my fear.
      I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
      And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
      Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
      Only I will remain.
