Dear Group Members

I am working on providing samba share on my customized Android device.
I am able to share a directory using the below mentioned smb.conf but when I drop a file from windows machine to the shared Folder i.e. sharedDir through the network, It doesn't allow and moreover files are not visible on windows machine.
I see the file is getting created on the device but the content of the file is not copied means file size on the device is zero. Here is the used smb.conf file content:

    workgroup = WORKGROUP
    netbios name = netbios-name
    interfaces =
#    server role = active directory domain controller
    security = user
    map to guest = Bad Password

    path = /data/sharedDir
    comment = samba share
    public = yes
    writable = yes
    printable = no
    create mask = 0755
    guest ok = yes
    browseable = yes
    available = yes

When I checked it on linux device it works fine. Files are getting created and files are visible also in the windows machine. I have attached the smbd log.
Is this due to some OS support missing on my customized deice or do I need to configure smb.conf with some more parameters?
Please let me know the solution.

Thanks & regards,
