I installed samba and set this configuration below.
By default, I have a "Public" folder that is shared with windows and I can access it from windows with out any problem.
I shared this hard drive "/media/user_name/Data" via Folder Sharing as you can see below.
Unfortunately, I was not able to access this folder via windows, meanwhile I can access the "Public" folder as I mentioned earlier.
I tried the change the access permissions of the "Data" folder. I used the following command.
sudo chmod -R 0777 /media/abdelkrim/Data
This is the message that I get on windows when I try to access it.
I really appreciate your help to solve this issue and make the folder accessible by windows.
Thanks in advance.
