> applied the following patches:

> samba version 3.0.5
> The error occurs when I copy a folder with subfolders from a 
> Windows XP (both SP1 and SP2) workstation to a samba share 
> that is linked to the mount point for the Iomega REV drive.
> It should be noted that I have not been able to reproduce 
> this issue when I connect to the same share using a linux 
> workstation (also running samba 3.0.5).  Also, this error 
> does not occur when I am copying files and folders locally on 
> the workstation with the REV drive.
> The fact that I cannot seem to reproduce the error by copying
