This one is easy.
Download a Secure Telnet client like PUTTY if you’re using Windows.
Log into to MyBook Live’s Linux operating system.
Use the nano text editor to alter a file named /etc/trustees.conf
Change it to:
Also make the same change to /tmp/trustees.mod
Finally use this command:
settrustees -f /tmp/trustees.mod
If you change the Public share using the Dashboard UI you will need to re-apply the changes above but why you would wish to change the Public Share in the Dashboard is a bit beyond me as all you can do is change its comment.
With this change ONLY the owner user (or admin ) has access to the Public share. Even works for FTP. The FTP client will be able to see the Public share but won’t be able to access it.
I’m not sure how this will affect the iTunes server and the DLNA server.)
