    How can I create a folder that points to a USB drive inside a share ?

    I need to careate a folder that points to an external USB drive inside an already shared folder. this would allow me to have a larger shared space.

    I will attempt to clarify what I am asking.
    I have a share on my server named multimedia. It has several folders in it ie: Movies, TV Shows, Music etc. I have 3 external USB drives that IU want to connect to the server and have them show up as folders in the share. I have been told that this can be done by editing the fstab file. but I am unsure of the syntax or path. what is the best way to accomplish this.

    The shared folder is accessable via your network correct?

    In the darkness I will lurk,
    waiting, watching, pert;
    seeping through the little cracks,
    waiting, watching backs;
    shadows beckon light is gone,
    watching what went wrong.

    The best way would be to create a folder in your home directory or wherever you choose.

    then open the disk utility, select your usb drive and select a custom mount point (your new folder you created)

    then inside that folder create the folder you want to share. either configure in your samba file or use the gui interface of the nautilus/gnome shell to select permission and share access
