  1. So to answer his question (and mine) if you had a USB stick die, (assuming you saved your license receipt) you can just download the latest version of Unraid and insall to usb. Then plug in and assign all the drives in the correct order and your 100% back to normal?
  2. In your scenario that would work perfectly. Your scenario is really based on folder permissions not by user authentication. Unraid gives the option to add multi users with different levels of access (since learning about the issue, im using the word "option" loosely). The limitation in your point, is that there can be many users (as in physical people using the server) however only two options/folder views are applied to all physical users. Happy to give an example if that helps. simply put your confusing authentication vs authorization.
  3. As for the actual work around. Its a bummer that this doesnt work properly. Realistically telling a friend to open up the command line, type something in, then FIRST open up a certain folder is rough. However im not going to go as far to say, that this ruins Unraid: it still is a bummer. No one should really expect security at such a "home user" level however i was more going to use it so fellow friends can share music/movies/tv shows but protect preying eyes from regular personal documents. Also lets not forget preventing someone from "cutting" files instead of using the copy command :
  4. limetech, Thanks a million for such a great post. I really mean that, im so happy to get a straight forward answer. So many times in forums other users start telling the OP to change a million settings without actually knowing whats REALLY going on behind the scenes. If i might add.....this should be a sticky note. On a better note make its way into the wiki/documentation. It explains well why the "private" share in Unraid it not a working function for windows. There must be many customers trying to get this to work.....
  5. Seems just the opposite. i cant get any user to add with ANY capitol letter in the name.
  6. I'm assuming your aware that this is NOT what is expected from Unraid user shares nor is making a user for EVERY computer name using the network practical. With that said i appreciated the work around. I was aware of the "secure" mode in raid which from what your telling me works great. As of now, traveling with my unraid box and allowing users to access certain data is not going to work with "secure" mode implemented. Getting everyone's computer names, typing them into unraid and setting up a share is not as easy as handing them a piece of paper with the words Login: Guest
  7. attached is a screen shot. I have also restarted both the PC and Unraid to refresh any SMB/credential issue.
  8. Hey Friendly Unraid users. Iv owned unraid for many months now and have loved it, however i have been plagued since day one with a user share problem. Im trying to setup user accounts to access Shares. I THINK i have all the settings correct and yet when windows asks me to login with username and password (type them in) and says i don't have access. If i make the setting as "Public" then everything works fine (i can see, copy, move, create files and folders no problem). Here you can see i have made two accounts in unraid "guest" and "alex". For the sake of making things simple h
  9. well the point of having user shares is so that when someone comes over (guest), they can just double click a folder and login to get access. No windows settings....my mom wouldnt understand even what a credentials manager is. Be Careful with terminology here. I believe that a 'guest' is not a "person", it is a machine with a "user name" that is not the "user". Your Mom may be able to access that share as a guest only if she brings her own computer... You might be able to 'fool' it if you setup a totally separate account on your computer that she would be required to use. R

  11. bump.... (no one else has this issue?) What am i doing different....?
  12. I have also cleared the "Credential Manager" in windows. For those of you who do not know, its the part in windows where it stores the automatic login for networks. AKA, windows remebering me as admin instead of asking me for a password.
  13. Hey Friendly Unraid users. Im so excited! i just bought my pro version (actually got the two pack) and installed UnRaid. All day been messing around with all the features. Anyway, im trying to setup user accounts to access folders. I THINK i have all the settings correct and yet when windows asks me to login with username and password (type them in) and says i dont have access. If i make the setting as "Public" then everything works fine. Am i missing something? do i need to mess with some windows setting? Here you can see i have made two accounts in unraid "guest" and "alex". F
  14. Well, i tried all..... restarted server restarted SMB Renamed Workgroup to "WORKGROUP" Added more users changed Password Double checked the actual config file (attached) wanted to add: this is a fresh install no upgrading from 4.7.... Also to the person who suggested that thread....its only 1 page long. there was no "checkout page 8 or 9"
