permissions – Unable to share Windows 10 folder to Everyone

I am unable to access shared folders on exFat USB drives on a Windows 10 computer without entering user name and password (from Raspbian, don’t have other computers at hand).

  1. Password Protection is turned off in the Network and Sharing Center, so under the Sharing tab of each folder properties, Password Protection reads “People without a user account and password for this computer can access folders shared with everyone.”

  2. Under the Sharing tab, Click the “Share…” button, under the “Choose people to share with” popup, only the admin/owner account is visible. Add Everyone and Guest permissions, but as soon as I click the “Share” button, Everyone and Guest are removed from the list.

  3. Under Advanced Sharing, I CAN add Everyone and Guest through the Permissions button, however, it has no effect – Everyone and Guest are still missing from “Choose people to share with”, and accessing the share remotely still requires me to enter user name and password.

I am at a lost, help please.

Easy way for others to share files?

Hello. As part of my startup, I am part reporter, and I am looking for an easy way for people to be able to share files with me.

For instance, let’s say someone shoots a video of XYZ, and they give me permission to show it on my website. If the video is 3GB in size, then there is no way they can email it to me.

I have a VPS that hosts my website – still under construction – and I’m wondering what is the easiest way for others to be able to share files with me?

(Easiest for me. Easiest for them.)

Also, I guess i should say that *security* is important in whichever way I go.

Please share email marketing tool

My honest suggestion is to invest in a email marketing tool instead of using a free one. You need to invest in tools for your business and the email marketing one is probably the most important.

Don’t use Mailchimp cause you’ll gonna regret it when your business will get bigger and you’ll figure out all the limitations it has.
The worst thing is to create all your automation and email funnels on Mailchimp, and realise months after that you need to move everything to a service that allows you to do more things. Trust me, you don’t want to go through this.

I tried all the most popular ones, and I can tell you that Active Campaign is the best on the market. It’s the more usable, it covers all the areas you need for an online business and is supported everywhere.


applications – How do I enable a forced stop & disabled Bluetooth Share app on Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich)

Over enthusiastic to disable many distracting apps on my Sony Xperia U (ST25i) I went “settings>apps>all” and disabled away. Where no disable option was available, I clicked on force stop. With Bluetooth Share I stupidly took it to be a social networking app and disabled it, later force stopping it. Dumb, I know, but how do I get it back? I’m fairly new to all of this, obviously, so please be very specific in responding. Many thanks.

catalina – Specify mount point for Samba share

I can connect to a Samba share on my Raspberry Pi with the following:-

open smb://pi:password@MilliwaysPi4.local/pi

This works, and Finder shows the Location as MilliwaysPi4.local with access to the pi home directory.

This mounts at /Volumes/pi but if I have another Raspberry Pi already mounted it mounts at /Volumes/pi-1 etc.

Is there any way I can specify a mount point?

On Linux I can mount a share on my Mac at a specified mount point /mnt/Image with a command like the following:-

sudo mount.cifs //Milliways.local/Images /mnt/Image -o user=XXX

Is there any similar option in macOS.
The Help file is very brief, and I can’t find any detailed documentation for the open smb:// commands.
