HYPER-V Windows 10 Ubuntu 18.04 folder sharing problem

have been running Ubuntu 18.04 on Windows 10 (64bit 1903 fully patched) without problems.  In order to expand storage independently of the system disk, I have added a second virtual Hard Drive on the SCSI controller.

have created a new partition and set this to auto-mount at the same time as the main VM.  I have created new folders on the new VHD and set one of these to share.  Looking from inside the VM, the new

folder has the same settings (ownership & permissions) as the existing shared folders on main virtual machine (e.g.
Documents and Downloads) and I can also see the Share name if I browse My Network in File Explorer. 

while any Share on the main VM is accessible from the host system, the share on the new VHD is not:

Windows cannot access UbuntuShared

You do not have permission to access UbuntuShared. Contact your network administrator to request access.

I look at the properties - Security tab for a working share I see 

where martin (Unix Usermartin) is also the owner.  

However if I create a share on the new VHD

And if I go to Advanced "Unable to display current owner" > Change does allow any new owner to be found or set.

Is it possible to access a VM share if it is not on the main drive of the VM?

If it is how and where do I need to set the permissions?
