Hello Everyone,

Let me explain my situation. I have bought WD Storage 2TB, and i created user in it to connect from another server,

I have mounted it to my server,
//0.0.0.0/external /backup cifs username=xxx,password=xxxx 0 0  there is no problem..

The problem is files owner is not root, different numbers like 98 1000 or something..

How can i mount this external disk to write in it as a root. Because i need to write in it as a root.

Is there any suggestion?
