    So i wanted to set my freinds up with sharing accounts so they can access my public folder..... this is all done and working. But i wanted to also give them read only access to another folder on another drive. So ive set the permissions for the drive, folder and enclosing folder, but it still doesnt appear when they mount my share.

    I also tried putting an alias to the other folder into my public folder to see if they could access it like that, but it didnt work either.

    Has anyone got any workarounds for this?

    Thanks in advance btw.

    Did you add the drive as a share through Sharing Preferences? I don't see any mention of that.
