I have a windows machine locally connected to my linux machine. There is a shared folder on the windows machine, which I mounted on my linux machine using
sudo mount -t cifs -o username=myuser //xxx.xxx.xx.xx/myfolder /mnt/windowsshare/ and it's mounted successfully and I can see the files and folders.
The problem now is that I'm trying to create a folder inside the mounted share but I can't. I've checked the permissions of the mounted folder and it says
"You are not the owner, so you cannot change these permissions"
as shown below:
I've tried running
sudo chmod -R 777 /mnt/windowshare and
sudo chown -R isa /mnt/windowshare but it says chmod:
changing permissions of '/mnt/windowshare/.?00000002202011111110e5(and many other chars)': No such file or directory
then I stop the command using ctrl+c
Any advice how I can have control access over this folder on my linux machine?
