I've noticed 2 annoying problems with my current MBWE configuration that I'd like to find a way to fix:
1. I've noticed folders randomly showing up as empty. I have no idea whats the cause of this, either its a disk failure (I never noticed anything odd in the past and the problem only starts to show itself after I've done the firmware upgrade, likely unrelated). The other is that somehow some application is deleting these files, perhaps a virus-scanner on one of the systems in my network, perhaps one of the devices as part of cleaning up some library.
2. The Apple devices on my network are creating several folders on my MBWE in Public folders, that I dont want to have show up anymore.
My thought was: Why not fix permissions.. Give 755 access everywhere and the problem is solved.. Not really..
I chown'ed all folders to my own username and chmod'ded all those folders as 755. Even though the group "jewab" has no write access, guest is still creating "Network Trash Folder", ".AppleDB", ".AppleDouble" and several other folders..
I've also tried editing the Samba config file to set "writable = no" and restarted samba, but to no avail.. The folders are still writeable..
Is there a way to only give read access to my network share, or am I forced to move them to entirely new shares, rather than "Public/Shared Videos"? Appreciate your comments..
