Advanced Options

Click "Show Advanced Options" contains two sections:

  • Share folder security: To manage folder security.
  • Advanced SMB share option: To special settings for samba.

Share Folder Security

Use the Folder Security to specify access permissions to sub-folders in a share. Click "Edit folder security" to open the Folder Security panel.

Reset Folder Permission

Click RESET FOLDER PERMISSION to change the share folder's permissions to the access permission specified in the User Access Permission for the share.

Share Folder Owner

Sets the CREATOR_OWNER value for share.

Share Folder Group

Sets the CREATOR_GROUP value for the share.

Access for this Folder

Use this section to set the add or delete users/groups from the ACL permissions list and specify the access permission for users or groups for the share.

The following actions can be performed for the share folder:

Add a users or group to the ACL permissions list.
Remove a user or group from the ACL permissions list. Check a user from the list of users and groups in this section and click DELETE.
Set all the values back to the way they were set before making any changes.

Access for new folder/file

Use this section to set the add or delete users/groups from the ACL permission list and specify the access permission for users or groups for new folders or files created in the share.

Grants users Read/Write access. Works as full modify privileges.
Grants users Read only access. Users cannot write to the folder or overwrite the files.
Prevents all access to the files and folders.

Advanced SMB Share Options

Use these settings to affect the performance of the device.

Don't use ea to save streams

Turns off the xattr setting in samba which can improve file performance. Removing xattr disables extended attribute settings which is used in features such as Windows ACL.

Disable oplocks

Oplocks essentially means that the client is allowed to download and cache a file on its hard drive while making changes; if a second client wants to access the file, the first client receives a break and must synchronize the file back to the server. This can give significant performance gains in some cases; some programs insist on synchronizing the contents of the entire file back to the server for a single change.

Hide share from browsing

Disables share from being searchable by browsing in Explorer or Finder. Users with access permissions can still access the share. Behaves like hidden shares in Windows.

Click SAVE to accept changes.

DELETE a Share

Click DELETE to permanently delete a share. A pop-up window will appear with a warning message about deleting shares. You will need to type the name of the share into the pop-up window to confirm deletion of the share.


Without typing the Share name properly, the DELETE button in this window is greyed out and not functional.

Note: Proceed with caution. If you delete a share, all files in the share will be permanently deleted and cannot be recovered.

A gateway must be on-line in order to delete a share. If no gateways are online, the DELETE button will be disabled.

Note: When deleting a share with a large amount of data, it will take time for the system to complete the process. During that time, you may still see the data is available.
