Which shows you are running as a standalone server. 
You should remove the '@' from the 'valid user'. 
Does the user 'gc55_data2' exist on the Linux Mint machine & on the 
Windows Computer ? 
I know that the group 'gc55_data2' will not exist on the Windows 
machine, but does it exist on the Linux Mint machine ? 

There is no user gc55_data2, it is a group only for this share 
and it does exist on the Linux Machine. 
So is valid users in conflict with force group? 
Should I delete the valid users line entirely? 
Any other suggestions for proper authentication of users would be appreciated. 
Thanks for your help!
