Unix Updates not reflected in Windows

When I delete a file on our Unix system, a BAT file that I run on the windows
environment is still able to read the "DELETED FILE".(Residing in PC's memory no
When I try and navigate to the deleted file using Windows FILE EXPLORER it shows
that the file is gone, but the Bat file keeps finding the deleted file.

I tried several of the SMB.CONF options including SYNC ALWAYS and REVALIDATE and
this did not correct the problem.

The only way I was able to get the Client to recognize the file was deleted was
to Kill the DAEMON for SMBD and Re-map the Drive re-logging into the samba
server again.

Is there a SMB.CONF setting that will help?.

Samba version 2.06
Unix (HP 10.2)
