Concerns with File Sharing using SMB

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to get the windows on my home network to be able to view certain shared folders on my iMac

 

When I enable SMB file sharing the windows PC gets to see most of my iMac and not just the shared folders with the appropriate read/write controls

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

thanks, Paul

What do you mean "PC gets to see most of my iMac and not just the shared folders?"

 

By default it is going to share home directories, so it's no surprise when you input your username and password you can view that user's files.
