  • Linux Lite: 4.2 64bit

I really need some help.  For whatever reason I struggle with samba every time I have to do anything with it.  This time though I am totally lost.  So I had an old P4 PC with an older version of Linux Lite that was set up as a media server.  After about 40 hours of messing with samba I got it to be visible and accessible by any computer on my network.  All was well until I upgraded to a new computer and installed the new version of Lite.  I can't get the network to work at all.  It can be seen by other computers but not accessed.  I have two hard drives in the computer.  On has the operating system and the other has the files I need to share on the network.  This is my smb.conf file

Code: [Select]
#======================= Global Settings ====================================
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Linux Lite Shares
netbios name = Server
security = user
encrypt passwords = true
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
map to guest = bad user
guest account = nobody
dns proxy = no
#======================= Share Definitions ===================================
path = /media/chad2/backup/shares
available = yes
valid users = %U %G
write list = %U
browsable = yes
public = yes
writable = yes
guest ok = yes
read only = no
printable = yes
locking = no
strict locking = no

I'm clueless, any ideas?
