I run a small network here with several remote drives.
For a while I have been having problems accessing those drives and getting various error messages, the most common being –
Failed to mount Windows share
Sometimes I would connect but I was then told that the target drive “contains no files” (where I knew it did).
This was frustrating as I had to physically move the remote drive and plug it directly into this machine via USB.
Eventually I found the fix. I edited my /etc/samba/smb.conf file and added two lines in the [global] block after the Workgroup entry –
force user = plex client min protocol = CORE
That seems to have fixed it!
