    I want to access Linux folder from windows system
    For that I edited smb.conf file and add these entry

    [Deepali]
    path = /Storage/deepali
    writeable = yes
    create mask = 0765
    guest ok = yes
    and also othere entry’s like global etc …

    I also add a user name called deepali in samba user list as admin right (RW)

    Now when I go to windows system and try to access this folder I could access but can right not it . what could be the problem ?

    Because you don't have write priviledge to write into the Linux folder. What Linux
    distro you are using? Change your smb.conf file settings to 'create mask=0777' and try now.
    See if it works.
