Constant SMB permission errors on Windows, when I'm saving files from a program such as Skype or Chrome

This is what happens:

  • I have R/W permissions to the share and folder
  • I can copy files to this folder without any problems on Explorer
  • Quite often, when I'm saving a file from Skype, or from my browser, I get the error above
  • This happens on every single Windows machine on my network
  • My UnRAID server is the SMB Local Master Browser
  • I have an SSD cache Drive using BTRFS
  • I'm running UnRAID 6.3.5 with a few docker containers and VMs

 

Things I have done:

 

  • I have rebooted the server
  • I have remove the Windows machine from the workgroup, and added it back
  • I've ran the plugin Docker Safe New Perms
  • I've ran Tools > New Permissions

 

None of these things has solved the problem. It is quite annoying to have to save files to my local HDD just so I can move them to my NAS, it almost breaks the purpose of having a NAS. I've been having this problem since version 6.2.

 

Can someone please help me solve this problem? I have researched through the forum but I couldn't find anything relevant to this.

 

Thanks

Does it make a difference if you map a drive in windows to that particular share?

Don't do this against all the drives / shares if you run any docker apps.  There's a reason docker safe new permissions exist.

Did you map the share on your Windows computer?  (A 'mapped share' will have a drive letter on your Windows computer.)

 

What version(s) of Windows are you running?

Thanks for the suggestion, I will map the share as a drive and see if I stop getting permission errors. I'm using Windows 10 on all my PCs.

Thanks for the heads up! wasn't aware it would mess up my docker apps.
