I have my 86U set in repeater mode and have an ssd attached to it with all my music files so I can access them from my different computers and such around the house. I want to know if I have adequate security in place. I have 'Allow guest login' switched to off. Is this all the security I need to keep everyone else out of my files? Thanks.
If you're using SMBv2 only as the Samba protocol then that's pretty much it when it comes to Microsoft's security. For someone to be able to access your shares they'd need to have access to your PC while it's logged in or know your user name and password. Or they could just unplug your USB drive and walk away with it.
