At some point I need to re-visit this project and make a newer better version.
In terms of improving security i am currently thinking that there may be some value in using NTFS formatting for the storage drive as that would allow me to set the Puppy software to open the files as read only - by using rcrsn51's ntfs3g mod as described here

The concern above seemed to be that even if you hid the drive icons, people could still manually mount and damage Windows. This fix is just another line of defense. It is only for NTFS. It doesn't permanently change the drive.
1. Go to the folder /bin
2. Locate the file ntfs-3g and rename it as ntfs-3g-full
3. In the same folder, create a script named ntfs-3g
Code:
#!/bin/sh
ntfs-3g-full -o ro "$@"


I wonder if forcing the Puppy software to open the files 'readonly' will improve the overall security of the files? Or will other machines simply be able to access the files in r/w mode as before?

Are you talking about the files on the Samba server? The proper way to protect them is to declare the share as "read only = yes" in its definition.

Thanks for the advice. That sounds like a good enough protection for me.
cheers
