I run SAMBA 4.9.5 on my raspberry pi 4 and share a folder on my external hard drive(exfat as fs).
It worked all fine until I want to remotely delete or modify files on it.
I cannot delete or modify anything on the HDD from my windows pc, mac and iPhone. Nothing works. Deleting and modifying files on my boot drive works just fine. The only thing I can do is browse, create a file, change the content but when I want to rename the file or delete it I get an error saying that the requested operation is not supported.
I checked my HDD for any errors on windows but the drive is all fine.

I tried almost anything but nothing worked for me. I even edited the fstab file and rebooted like 20-30 times no results.

For those how are looking for the fix:
I just got rid of all fruit settings and it was fixed for me
