I just recently got my first Synology NAS (DS213+) and am running DSM 4.3 on it. I still have a few days of tinkering to spend on it before I need to decide if I should exchange it for a QNAP or something else...
My problem is the file permissions. I have created users, created shared folders and set permissions on them to give read/write access to all my users, I did not touch the group permissions at all. At the same time I set the (disabled) guest account to "no access" on all these shares. I have not enabled ACL on the shares yet.
Even though I did this the files and folders I create in these shares from a Windows 7 installation are created world writeable (777). I mounted the share in linux and created a text file which looked a little bit better, but it was still "644". How can I set the default creation mask of the entire share to prevent the world from any access at all to the share?
I enabled SSH access and tried editing the /usr/syno/etc/smb.conf, but as someone said in another post on the Synology forum, that file is overwritten on a restart of the NAS.
