I setup samba between Linux and Windows.

And I entered the description of data in smb.conf file

        comment = Daily_Reports
        path = /mnt/vg-stg/New-storage/Daily_Reports/
        read only = no
        writeable = yes
        oplocks = yes
        level2 oplocks = yes
        force security mode = 0
        dos filemode = no
        dos filetime resolution = no
        dos filetimes = no
        fake directory create times = no
   browseable = yes
   csc policy = manual
   veto oplock files = /*.mdb/*.MDB/*.dbf/*.DBF/
   veto files = /*:Zone.Identifier:*/
   store dos attributes = yes
   map acl inherit = yes
        create mode = 0777
        directory mode = 2777
        printable = no
        guest ok = yes

And when i restart the samba and try to access the Explorer instead of just showing the Folder Name it also shows the Complete path of File or Folder of Source Server.

e.g If the Fodler name is Daily_reports. The explorer is showing like vg-stg.New-storage.Daily_Reports

Please advice if any one have knowledge of it of how to just show the FOLDER NAME instead of complete PATH+FOLDER-NAME
