First post here and new to Manjaro.
I’m running Manjaro Gnome on a Thinkpad and trying to setup Samba so that a Windows 7 machine can use my second drive as a backup location. I’ve installed samba, manjaro-settings-samba, libwbclient, and nautilus-share.
In manjaro-settings, I’ve enabled sharing and made file sharing active. Also unticked the require password entry.
I went to my spare drive (ultrabay) and created a folder called Shared. Right clicked the folder and selected Sharing Options. I checked “Share this Folder”, “Allow others to create and delete files” and “Guest access”. Folder permissions shows that owner, group and others can create and delete files. This folders path is /run/media/minuteman/500gb/Shared.
In Nautilus(Files) I go into Other Locations/Windows Network/WORKGROUP/MINUTEMAN-PC and I see the folder Shared. I can also see it from the Windows 7 machine. However, I’m getting a password error on both machines when trying to open the folder from these locations. “Failed to mount Windows Share: permission denied” on Manjaro. Windows says I don’t have permissions to access MINUTEMAN-PC/SHARED
I’ve looked at the smb.conf file that I believe is installed by the manjaro-settings-samba package but really don’t know where to go from here.

I’m sure I’m overlooking something so I’m looking for any suggestions. I’d like to have a password free experience in file transfers to/from the Shared folder from either computer.
Thanks for any help.
