Shared folders tree and permissions ?

    • Shared folders tree and permissions ?

      Hello,

      "USB Backup" plug-in can copy files from a "shared folder" to an external storage.

      Thus, to be able to backup all my "shared folders" on my USB External Hard Drive, in one shoot, I've created a first level shared folder (named "4tb1") and I've create all my shared folders inside it (4tb1/share1/, 4tb1/share2/, 4tb1/share3/...).
      Is it a good settings?

      When I've built my first level shared folder (4tb1/), I gave the permissions below:
      Administrator: read/write, Users: no access, Others: no access
      because this shared folder will be used for USB Backup only.

      I've set differents permissions to my second level shared folders (4tb1/share1/, 4tb1/share2/, 4tb1/share3/...) and I've edited some privileges on them.

      I've added my second level shared folders inside SMB/CIFS Services.

      But I meet some difficulties with the permissions on my second level shared folders (4tb1/share1/), none works correctly!

      Do I have to set the permissions of my first level shared folder (4tb1/) to "Everyone: read/write", to be able to give some specific permissions to my second level shared folders: (4tb1/share1/)?

      Inside "Shared folder" panel, my first level shared folder (4tb1/) has the value "No" in "Used" column.
      Thus I presume that this shared folder is not published/activated and no one can use it to access to my OMV server.
      Is it exact? Is it a correct/secure settings?

      Thanks a lot for your help,
      Chris
