[nextCloudPi] set up a folder to share to the network?

I am using nextCloudPi to store my data to external HDD.

As my external HDD is pretty big, I want to share some space from my external HDD to the whole network using samba which doesn’t need to back up(sync to NC).

I saw that I can activate samba. but the feature is only able to share one of the users’ data from nextCloud to the network which is personal data.


you will have to add a share to smb.conf if you want to share files that are not your Nextcloud personal folder.

there’s many good guides online, it’s pretty easy
