Because I’m migrating Windows file server to new Linux one.
In Windows environment I shared specific folder (c:\share) and everything, which is contained inside, is accessible directly typing \\ <smb://> (showing all subfolders and all files) e.g. \\\test.exe <smb://> and it’s not necessary to introduce sharing name e.g. \\\newshare\test.exe <smb://>

I have website which reference file server path and I should to change every path, replacing \\ <smb://> with the new sharing resource, e.g. \\\newshare <smb://>, which I should create on Samba.
