Samba mount only allows modification if root

I am attempting to mount a Samba share from a Synology. It's still Samba and Linux. The Guest OS is Ubuntu 16.04. When Ubuntu mounts the directory, it looks just dandy. However, I am unable to make changes to anything in that directory unless I sudo the modification attempt, at which point it works just fine. I don't understand why. The user on both devices is art, which I'm sure doesn't muddy the waters at all. </sarcasm>

I have the below line in /etc/fstab:

//    /home/art/Dropbox       cifs    credentials=/home/art/.smbcredentials,uid=1001,gid=1001,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm,_netdev 0       0

.smbcredentials has the user's login information for the Samba share.


How can I make this so I can modify it without needing root access?
