Hi there:

>        protected dir = /home/share, /home/user1 ;
>        trashcan dir = /smbtrash ;

It seems that implementation of such parameter has some difficulties and
eventuates reduction on performance (e.g. handling "protected dir"s and
"trash dir" on the different devices like /dev/hda1 & /dev/hdb1).
I suggest a service specific parameter in smb.conf like the followings:

	remove utility = /etc/scripts/saferm

The benefits with such policy are:
1. The implementation in SAMBA code is much easier.
2. The undelete policy is fully under control of administrator in a per
service or global manner.
3. The administrator can turns off it for performance critical services.

I am a subscriber of both lists, and have seen a lot of asks for this
capability as yet. SAMBA team, What is your idea?
