What is the difference between the CIFS Normal share and the CIFS Homedir share?

The CIFS Normal share can provide a public directory for all users while the CIFS Homedir share provides each user with an exclusive directory that is named after the user and only accessible to the user.

If you do not need to limit permissions on the shared directory, configure the CIFS Normal share. If you want to allow only specified users to access their exclusive directories, configure the CIFS Homedir share.

If you choose to configure the CIFS Homedir share, you cannot access the directory of other users.
