Yes, I need further assistance.

2.4.42 in MS-FSCC mentions for FILE_ACTION_REMOVED_BY_DELETE the meaning "The file was removed by delete." As Richard also mentioned, the description is terse. If I for example search for FILE_ACTION_REMOVED in [MS-FSA], I find a few places where it is mentioned and thus propagated up to [MS-SMB2] and [MS-FSCC]. If I search for FILE_ACTION_REMOVED_BY_DELETE in [MS-FSA], I do not find any mentioning of it in [MS-FSA].

So my question again: Can you specify what events in the file server (or layers below) trigger FILE_ACTION_REMOVED_BY_DELETE to show up in a notify response?
