I have an improvement for you. Allow SMB Share to share the racine of an SMB share like : SMB://HostName/ .

I want that because my nas (Synology) automaticaly share usb drive on / and no in a specific folder.

Sorry for my english i'm french.

Fixes #989


#1 Updated by Jakub Stedry about 10 years ago

I would guess that this wount work. SMB sharing is based on share_folder name which is this case is not available. And I think that on synology it is not possible to create a share on the top level - like in Microsoft world "admin share" based on "$" sharing whole drive


#2 Updated by Valentin Meriel about 10 years ago

Sorry, I did probably not well understood, what I want is power used directly smb://IP.or.Name/ as a folder, because when I use Samba on my NAS it create folders that are automatically added to share, but I can not definire in advance and I have to change the link of favorie in Showtime.

I tried to create bookmark like: smb:// - Windows 7 host. And in ST log see:
SMB Error 0xc00000bb

Found following explanation: http://lists.samba.org/archive/jcifs/2011-December/009828.html

To implement that ST needs modification of bookmark dialog if you use smb://
You should add login and pass fields because Windows doesn't allow to list shares to Guests by default (security restrictions):
