ReadyNAS 314 home directory owner and group

I am running a ReadyNAS 314 with firmware 6.4.2 (upgraded today).  I have been having some problems lately and I believe it may be due to the ownership of my home directory.  My home directory is owned by "ken" (one of my two users who have shares [me]).  I did some searching on these forums and found others whose home directories were owned by root, admin, and guest so I've not figured out just WHO should own the home directory (and what group it should belong to).  I am hoping someone (perhaps at NetGear) who has access to a 100% fresh ReadyNAS (preferably with 6.4.2, but I won't be choosy) that hasn't been tinkered with could post an "ls -al" of the root directory for me.  I'll certainly take other people's input too (if you haven't been goofing around in your root directory via ssh).  I'd like to see an "ls -al" in the home directory as well.

 

Mine root directory looks like this:

root@readynas:/# ls -al

Re: ReadyNAS 314 home directory owner and group

I did a factory reset recently, and I haven't touched the permissions with ssh.  The only user is admin.  The system has two volumes (data and data2)

Re: ReadyNAS 314 home directory owner and group

The "ken" home directory itself should be owned by ken:users, but /home should be owned by admin:admin

Re: ReadyNAS 314 home directory owner and group

Thank you.  It appears that permissions and ownership for the home/admin folder are incorrect as well.  I'm going to reset them to what StephenB shows in his.
