I have a Raspberry Pi which is using
ntfs-3g in order to share a USB external hard drive on my home network. On the hard drive, there are some files which are marked with the "Hidden" Windows file attribute. However, when I access the share on a Windows PC, the files do not show as hidden. As a result, I see many hidden files such as
thumbs.db, as well as directories like
System Volume Information, even though my Windows setting in Folder Options is set to not show hidden files.
I know that
samba is not correctly transferring the Hidden attribute because if I view the Properties of a file that should be hidden, the Hidden check-box is not selected:
These are the current contents of my
#### GLOBAL CONFIG ##### workgroup = WORKGROUP netbios name = raspberrypi server string = %h wins support = yes dns proxy = no security = share null passwords = yes guest account = nobody interfaces = eth0 lo bind interfaces only = yes #### PUBLIC SHARE ##### [Mazda6] comment = Media Drive path = /media/HDD browseable = yes guest ok = yes writeable = yes public = yes available = yes create mask = 0666 directory mask = 0777
How can I have files that are marked with the Hidden file attribute on the NTFS drive to be shown as Hidden when viewed through the
samba share on a Windows PC?
