Incorrect Folders Showing on Mac SMB Share

Sorry for what I know already is a stupid question but what am I doing wrong. i am sharing folders from iMac with Infuse but when I connect it is only showing old folders that used to be shared but aren’t anymore. I cannot see the folders that should be shared either.

Are you streaming files from your Mac to another device, or is this Infuse on Mac accessing local files?

Infuse on Apple TV is accessing the files on the mac

There are a few things to check.

  1. SMB is enabled on your Mac (more info here Set up file sharing on Mac - Apple Support)
  2. At least one user is selected under ‘Windows File Sharing’ (as shown under ‘Advanced Options’ in the link above)
  3. The folders/drives you wish to share are added to the list of Shared Folders
  4. Selected username and password are being entered in Infuse

If you’ve recently installed an update for macOS, you may need to disable and then re-enable File Sharing to get it working again. You can also try one of the tips found here. Ventura Connection Issues

Note: iCloud username/password cannot be used. If you’re using an iCloud ID to log in to your Mac, you will need to set up a new ‘Sharing Only’ user as described here: Change Users & Groups settings on Mac - Apple Support

There’s also a file sharing bug in macOS which Apple appears to be fixing in the upcoming macOS 13.3 release.
