SMB authentication for private user space?


Is it possible to authenticate with SMB using the private space credentials?

I created an account with My Cloud Home, and have been storing all of my data using this account. However, I can no longer access this data using the WD Desktop App after I upgraded my MacBook to Catalina :pensive:. Sure, I can access it via http, but this is of no use to me, I need a filesystem to manage my data with.

I can mount the Public folder using SMB (as general user) - but this is not where my data is. I want to be able to mount my data using SMB, but I don’t know what credentials to use (my credentials used to access data via web don’t work).

Is this possible?
