    Hi all.....Setup a Freenas server lastnight to hold my music and all is fine...Sonos can see it and all works good.

    But now I want to create another share for my RAW photos and I am not quite sure how I would do this.

    I created another share in FreeNas, called photos but when I look at it from within windows it has all my music files in it, so obviously done something wrong.

    Basically I want a share on FreeNas, lets say its called Media and then within that a folder called music and one called photos. How would I achieve this :confused:

    Create a share in FreeNAS called Media and give it the correct permissions to allow remote windows users to create files and folders, and then from windows explorer (Network - <FreeNAS server> - Media), create as many folders in this "Media" share as you need! (unless i'm misunderstanding what it is you want to do:) )

    Ah...ok, that's embarrassingly simple. I thought I needed to create them from with FreeNas itself :blush:
