I did see a similar thread but it never seemed to be resolved.
Every time I reboot now, all the "Shared Folders" appear empty.
This is a setup I've been fooling with for a few months, with the intention of putting it into production. It's been rebooted numerous times without issue, but as of today, after updating to 4.1.24-1.and restarting, the shared folders no longer seem to have any files in them on each boot. The files still exist but not when accessed via the sharedfolders path.
I can't see them if I SSH in as root.
None of the services can see them - e.g VirtualBox, HDHomeRun.
I CAN see the files via Samba, but looking at the smb.conf file it appears that the SMB share points directly to the physical path, not the sharedfolders path.
I have two ZFS mirrors for storage, i can see all the data and files if I go to the pool directly.
I can "fix" the issue temporarily by adding a new shared folder and applying the config which I assume triggers a process to update the config files.
Not sure where to start - where is the mapping between the Shared Folder and the physical path defined?
