I suppose I should prune the file-server smb.conf of the unnecessary 

When I log in as HOME\Administrator, I can map the share to a drive and 
disconnect it. However I cannot open the share.

This changed when I set the next-higher directory level to be owned by 
root:HOME\Domain Admins. Now I can see the folders in the share but I 
can't get into them.

After restarting Windows Explorer I was able to bring up the security 
tab but I can't change the permissions. Now I get an ""unable to 
enumerate objects in container" error.

Strangely I can actually get into some folders (owned by 
garydale:HOME\Domain Users) but not others with the same ownership.
