Hide Share

I need to hide the smartware share can anyone please tell me how to do so

You can do this on a Windows Samba network

Login to the MBL using WinSCP

  1. Browse to /etc/samba

  2. Right click and edit overall_share

  3. Change to browseable = no

See below

BEGIN ## sharename = SmartWare

  path = /shares/SmartWare
  comment = SmartWare
  public = yes
  browseable = no
  writable = yes
  guest ok = yes
  map read only = no

Making the share not browseable might not be a good idea though as it then disappears as an option in WD SmartWare to backup to :frowning:

WD Smartware should let users specify paths themselves

I realize its probably not the most secure place to place backups but I am the only one that knows about hidden smartware share so its ok, and thank you so much man
