Anyone try the Samba App?  I opened, added a share folder from my internal back up drive and I can't access..  And additionally, the App won't launch again.. I rebooted and still nothing.  Any tips would be appreciated.  Thanks!

App? on a cell phone? what? Link to what you are referring to please?

if you mean Samba as part of Linux, it has never worked for me since a brief interval back during Peppermint 2... or maybe 3... ever since then I delete it from my Peppermint installs right away. If I need to work with our home network, I've always had to boot into a Windows partition, and even that doesn't work now that our main network is run via Win10. Other half has no interest in trying to figure it out and I no longer touch his computers where the home network resides.
PeppermintOS 8,9 & 10 Respins currently installed  on:
'16 Antec Aria rebuild
PMX Respin on '18 Asus VivoBook
