Share Extra Parameters

From Amahi Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Extra Parameters option for Shares will appear if you enabled Advanced Settings.

It can be used to add other parameters in your smb.conf for specific shares.

IMPORTANT: You can easily make Amahi generate INVALID samba configurations with this option - so use it very carefully!!

Things You Can Do

You can do anything that Samba let's you

  • Add Recycle bins to each of your shares
  • Allow guests to see a share, by adding this line to a share
guest ok = yes
  • Add quotas to a share
  • Allow files to be set as hidden in Windows
map hidden = yes
comment = Backup files from Windows PC

If these work well and there is demand for any of them, we will provide them as a single-click checkbox. Send us feedback or file a feature request for it!
