I've followed the ff instructions on how to set up a Raspberry Pi as a simple network storage device:
However I ran into a problem at the step after setting up permissions. I assumed adding this to
samba.conf would set up the permissions:
[Backup] comment = Backup Folder path = /media/USBHDD1/shares valid users = @users force group = users create mask = 0660 directory mask = 0771 read only = no
Unfortunately, no luck. The authentication steps afterward allowed readonly access to the storage device, but not write/modify access.
Any clues on what could be the problem?
