    I'm having an issues with ufsd mounting a USB hard drive, then sharing it with SAMBA and retaining the DOS attributes when accessed via Windows system.

    The mount command I'm using is:
    mount -t ufsd -o noatime,sparse,nls=utf8,force,acl,user_xattr (dev) (mnt point)

    I've modified my smb.conf file to include the following:
    ea support = yes
    store dos attributes = yes
    map readonly = no
    map archive = no
    map system = no

    The issue is when I connect to the host with a windows client, and try to change the DOS attributes, they aren't.

    Example from a windows machine:
    Z:\>attrib +h +s +r +a test.txt

    Z:\>attrib test.txt

    So, how can I get the USFD driver to maintain/update DOS attributes?

    Sorry but I am using this on a Linux system. But I can't find a sub forum for Linux. MAC is "Unix" so I thought I would try here.
