Description

Currently, the platform only allows for a single word Share to be created. It would be beneficial if we could have multiple word, say 2 or 3 at most.

For example, when installing Greyole UI it would be best if we could establish the Greyhole Trash or Greyhole Attic, or Greyhole Recycle Bin share by default. Currently that is not possible. I tried to use Greyhole\ Trash and the result was Greyhole\ trash.

Many users don't realize how much space is taken up on the hard drive by the Greyhole files that have been deleted. Currently users have to create the share manually in the dashboard. Making install by default would be good, especially for rookies.

If there is another way make this work, then I am unaware.

There is a work around, but it's more like a hack.

I created the share directory manually, then did an insert in to the hda_production database, shares table. End result is the same as the app creating the share.

I have done a preliminary test and it appears to work fine. The Greyhole UI app has been updated accordingly.

The share directory will remain after uninstall to match the behavior of the app uninstall script.
