How to find smb.config? (My Cloud EX2 Ultra)

can anyone give me a hint how to access and modify the smb.conf file?
I intend to log the action , which do place an .scr file - which seems to be a worm - on my disk.
If I edit ‘Show hidden files’ in my windows explorer, there are still only my folders and a .DS_store file in each subfolder.
Do I have to access via command line?

I found following advice for logging to identify the device/account which is placing the file.

Hi @Keerti_01 ,
maybe that is a good way. I will try.

I found just now following post

There is a description to access the smb.config, but it is about the vi editor (I guess in Linux). Is there a way on a windows 11 machine?


OK, I installed PuTTY on the Windows machine and connected to the MyCloud Ultra.
On The MyCloud Ultra you have to activate SSH with a password.
User is always : sshd (on my NAS, it is written in the SSH activation dialogue )

Navigate to /etc/samba /

Next step to come

OK, thanks.

Only ftps for upload locally from my mobile (Scan App) and the access for the app is granted only for 1 directory/release.


Ok, but if I have to search the NAS, can’t that be more comfortable be done via Windows Front end?
Or is the SSH search more reliable?

Thanks for your support :slight_smile:

OK, thank you.
After I did only the search and identified 5 files.

I have done it using additional option -i, to have still the option to decide …

find / -name "*.scr" -exec rm -i {} \;
