I have an external hard drive formated in NTFS which I would like to be able to access by the network. I want to make a network share out of it.
I also have a Debian machine running in my house and I then got an idea.
I want to plug in my external hard drive (usb) into my Debian machine, and make a windows share with it, maybe with Samba, so I will be able to access it from my Windows 7 laptop and see it as a network share.
Additionally, how can I restrict specific folders of that network share, and allow only specific folders to specific users? For instance, I would like to give my girlfriend access to a folder of her name so she can put her files and so she wont be able to see the stuff in my folder...
