I'm a linux noob and I'm trying to configure a simple NAS using my pi. I have done the configuration and mounted the USB flash drive (formatted using Fat32) to the /media/USBHDD1/shares folder but I'm unable to write to the shares folder for some reason. I have tried changing the permissions using chmod (command below) but this does not help. Can someone please help?
sudo chmod -R 777 /media/USBHDD1/shares
[global] workgroup = WORKGROUP server string = %h server ; wins server = w.x.y.z dns proxy = no ; name resolve order = lmhosts host wins bcast [Files] comment = Backup Folder path = /media/USBHDD1/shares valid users = @users force group = users create mask = 0660 directory mask = 0771 writeable = yes browseable = yes
Also, the guide i have followed to do this setup is http://www.howtogeek.com/139433/how-to-turn-a-raspberry-pi-into-a-low-power-network-storage-device/
