View Full Version : [ubuntu] Hide lost+found in samba share

July 14th, 2011, 08:21 PM
I made an entire large drive into a samba share, but I don't really want users to see the lost+found directory, how can I hide it (want to avoid user curiosity)?

Does "veto files" and "hide files" work using the "simple" file sharing (through Nautilus)? Or does that only work when you configure through smb.conf file?

Essentially this:
hide files = /lost+found/


hide unreadable = yes in a share definition of /etc/samba/smb.conf
