I'm trying to share a Windows Folder to a Linux machine. I need write-access on Linux.

I shared the folder on Windows permitting 'Full Control' to 'Everyone'.

On MX-Linux, I mounted the shared folder with this command:

sudo mount.cifs //WindowsPC/Share /home/geek/Desktop/Windows-Share -o user=geek

But I only have read-access.

drwxr-xr-x 2 root root   0 Aug 11 12:58 'Google Photos'

I searched online and found this solution to someone with a similar problem

sudo mount -t cifs -o username=${USER},password=${PASSWORD},uid=$(id -u),gid=$(id -g) //server-address/folder /mount/path/on/ubuntu

Doing this, the folder gets mounted but is empty.

The Windows Machine is part of Workgroup, not a domain.
