Add Samba's Browsable Attribute to Web UI

Hello,

Background. I have a DL2100 which is working great, however all of the shares are visible to the casual user (though the share security is private). To add an extra layer of security I don’t want the shares to be visable via Windows Explorer, so I edited smb.conf and changed

browseable = yes

to

browseable = no

And manually restarted the smbd service. Works great, the shares aren’t visible but are still accessible.

Issue. The changes don’t persist after a reboot

Request. Modify the WebUI so this change can be added per share, and persist the change between reboots.

I know it’s a different NAS, but on a MyCloud (single drive) I can do the same, but on that the settings persist across a re-boot. It’s a good idea.
