    All of my Samba shares work fine with this file system setup. The OP and I have also discussed this point. This is OT, if you want to discuss this PM me.

    Now we need to chmod file system with
    Code:
    chmod -R u=rwXs,g=rwXs,o=rX la "Black 1"
    Don't forget the "" (like "Black 1" and "Black 2")

    Edit: Did you put all the users in the users group?
    I put all of my users in the users group yes.

    When running the above code, I got errors in changing the files/directories I'm not the owner of:
    Code:
    chmod: chaing permissions of {file}: Operation not permitted
    I tried running the code in sudo and it gave me this error:
    Code:
    chmod: cannot access 'la': No such file or directory
    Other than that the code ran just fine

    Dang cut 'n paste. it's from a script I have. You should use
    Code:
    sudo chmod -R u=rwXs,g=rwXs,o=rX "Black 1"

    Alright, that command successfully ran for both of the hard drives.

    What does it look like in the subdirectories? You should see all the files and directories with the group ownership as users and the directories as 775 with sgid. Did this happen? Post some output for some of this
    Code:
    ls -lt subdir
    ls -lt subdir/anothersubdir
    Try and look at the subdirectories from a remote machine.

    All of the directories I looked at were basically identical, here's small sample:

    Code:
    drwsrwsr-x 360 scott users 16384 May 15 10:58 Music 
    drwsrwsr-x   2 scott users 16384 May 13 20:48 lost+found 
    drwsrwsr-x  10 scott users  4096 May 13 14:53 Systems 
    drwsrwsr-x  28 scott users  4096 May 10 15:30 Movies
    Logging in from FTP works, and I can successfully navigate through all the appropriate directories

    ...and the the files all have 664 as the perms with the group users?

    I would chown the lost+found directory recursively back to root:root

    Here's what a typical file looks like: (all of them look the same)

    Code:
    -rwsrwsr-x 1 barry users 4096 May 15 12:25 {filename}
    And I chown'd the lost+found directories back to root:root.

    And now on to Samba. Do all of your users have both a user and samba user on the server? Does Samba work as you want it to?
