This App Lets You Mount SMB/CIFS File Systems on Chrome OS File Manager

For those who are familiar with SMB and CIFS file systems, congratulations. Your download link is at the bottom of this article. For others like me, here is a brief intro.

Server Message Block (SMB), one version of which was also known as Common Internet File System (CIFS) operates as an application-layer network protocol mainly used for providing shared access to files, printers, and serial ports and miscellaneous communications between nodes on a network. It also provides an authenticated inter-process communication mechanism. Most usage of SMB involves computers running Microsoft Windows, where it was known as “Microsoft Windows Network” before the subsequent introduction of Active Directory.

SMB/CIFS File Systems app for Chrome OS will let you  mount Windows and Linux shared network drives in your network. Here is the official litero:

This application provides an ability to mount SMB/CIFS server (generally Windows(TM) shared file server). Files/directories can be opened, modified and deleted in the Files app directly.

So, if you have a shared file system in your home or office network, this is the app for you!
