Permissions accessing files from attached drives

I have a couple of drives attached to my (Zorin 16) computer via usb. I turned on file sharing and the os installed necessary samba files needed for sharing. I set permissions for registered users. When I map network drives in windows 10 it can locate the drives and establishes a connection but when I try to open the drives windows says I don't have permission even though I passed them through when prompted. Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong?

I know little about Samba, but perhaps this solution can help you too:
