    permissions and Samba issue

    So I installed Samba servers early this morning successfully and was able to access my mounted 2nd hard drive path at (/media/titan1) and I could view sub folders within titan1 including downloads, downloads/movies & downloads/games. Later I installed plex media server and while trying to set it correctly I might have typed some commands to alter permissions.

    Now when I connect to my samba server through my windows 7 laptop I can only view the 2 sub folders (movies & games) within downloads but cannot go up a folder or to the root of titan1/ as I was able to do before. Any idea's how I can fix this guys?

    Thanks all

    its probably an easy fix, can you tell me what the permissions of the folder are at /media/titan1. open a terminal, then issue the following command
    Code:
    ls -la /media/titan1
    you didn't change anything in your smb.conf file did you?

    I didn't edit any files, just ran two commands that were suggested on plex forums for a similar problems. If I could locate the thread then I would post them. I have used the command you mentioned and this was the output:

    drwxrwxrwx 4 karl karl 4096 May 6 23:15 .
    drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 May 6 22:35 ..
    drwxrwxrwx 4 karl karl 4096 May 7 16:49 downloads
    drwx------ 2 root root 16384 May 6 22:07 lost+found
