Cannot access Internal HDD - permissions problem?
« on: March 29, 2010, 11:09:57 am »
Hi All,

I don't know why but I don't seem to be able to access any of the additional HDD via fileshare. I have recently reinstalled Beta 2 (after screwing up the permissions trying to fix this issues) but I seem to have the same problem. If I navigate to \\192.168.80.1\public\videos I can browse fine - but if I try to click on any of the extra drives from here I get a cannot access error.

I have tried CHMOD 777 and CHOWN root:public (is this what it should be?) on the files and dir struicture - but nothing seems to work. Clearly I don't know what I am doing so any advice would be appreciated!

Here is an example of one of the directories I cannot access:
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root public        33 2010-03-28 23:53 drive4 [33] -> /mnt/device/33/public/data/videos

P.s:
1. Cannot accesss via Ubuntu 9.10 or Windows 7
2. Access to the HDD the 0810 Beta 2 is installed on is fine
3. Am using LMCE dir structure, all Internal HDD are in devices under template Internal HDD #1790
4. I am only trying to access public files in the public directory

Cheers,
WR

Sweet! Thx bongowongo, I somehow missed that one in my travels.....

Thanks also to maverick who posted the temp workaround (fixed it for me):
Code: [Select]

Finally I can relax ;)
