    Samba, can't acess new hdd.

    I made another thread here about how I couldn't format my 4TB hdd correctly... I think I "may" have gotten it, but now I can't connect to this HDD. I have a W10 desktop and I can still connect to my other drives that are on the server. When editing the fstab, I essentially just changed the UUID with the new HDD's UUID thinking it would be that easy. I think my mounting location's owner:group got changed, so I fixed that. Still can't connect. I ended up making another folder, /srv/four and another Samba share and restarted. It worked! Problem was I forgot to change the mounting location in fstab. As soon as I changed fstab to /srv/four and then command mount -a, it broke... Could it be because the drive is not formatted correctly still or ? I had also made a test folder before changing from /srv/one to /srv/four and it carried over, but can only see it on the command line. My other two shares/drives still work, just not this one I'm trying to setup.

    It helps to actually SHOW the configs that are causing issues. More SHOW, less TALK.

    What do we need?
    The fstab.
    The permissions on the mount point - ls -al
    Something that shows there is a file system - df -Th or there are some lsblk options which will show it.

    Please. With code tags.
