You can access files hosted on your freedombox using Owncloud or SFTP.
Or least that is the primary way I have heard people talking about
getting files on and off the box. If you want to use Samba with your
freedombox the best thing to do would be to create a "plinth
application." Since samba is already packaged for debian, the hard part
of integrating it with freedombox is already done.

There is a pretty good tutorial/documentation on how to create a plinth
application on the wiki. [1] (If you are going to package samba it would
be great if samba were configured to use the LDAP server that comes with
plinth so plinth can take care of the user management!)
