[Samba] How to fix mapping Administrator to root

Hi Rowland ,

 In some scenarios, we have hundreds of shared folders. We don't want users to see too many folders, so we configure share permissions and set "hide unreadable = yes" in smb.conf. then users can only see the folder that he or she has permissions. This is why we do something in "share" tab.


yours Adam

No problem, I sort of thought this was the case ;-)
To be clear:
Check the 'share' tab, if you see 'Everyone', you do not need to change 
anything in this tab (I have never needed to change anything and now do 
not bother clicking on the tab)
The only tab where you need to make changes is the 'security' tab
