I cant seem to delete or extract anything on a samba share. these are my settings right now. pretty much default. it kind of keeps me from organizing some things due to them being in archives sometimes.
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = %h server
dns proxy = no
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 1000
syslog only = no
syslog = 0

Can you share following
ls -la /mnt/679758cc-bff6-428c-bb54-723e0ab23319
lsblk -o name,fstype,label,size,ro,type,mountpoint,partuuid,uuid

At least folder z should be writable. And creating new folder should be possible as well because you have set 777 permissions for the main folder on that external disk
I just figured it out. I was just clicking around with my samba share and it told me that i dont have permission and it has to do with transmission/debian not giving it to me. any way to get transmission quit lording over permissions or is this new security? this is only happening with multi file archives in torrents that are in a folder i think. i thought it had to do with corruption but i checked using the torrent by re adding it to the client.
can you share the content of the directory you try to adjust/edit via samba?
