Hide folders

    • You could hide all folders (browsable->no). The specific user needs to know the name of the share to mount it.

      The other way is to keep all shares visible but set strict permissions.

      I prefer strong permissions.

      You could try

      hide unreadable = yes

      in configuration.

    • Reference

      as ryecoaaron and subzero79 said: this option hides only subfolders within a share for which the particular user has no permissions.

      Stick to the permission settings; your users will see all shares, but can only access the ones they have appropriate permissions for.

      If you really want to hide a share, you have to hide it from all users with

      browsable = no

      The share can still be mounted by users with appropriate permissions, but it will no longer show up in your network. The user needs to know the exact name of the share to mount it.

    • You can't browse the folder directly.

      On a Windows machine, go to Computer/Workplace -> Add network location or map network drive -> provide path to your share.

      should be something like this:

      \\ip_of_your_nas\share

      Example:

      \\192.168.1.1\music

      You probably see your NAS in network places, but can't see the share. Just add a backslash and the name of the particular share.
