I have tried a lot but it still works not perfect

The start directory of the share is: /samba/public

It has the rights:

drwxr-x--T   8 martin   users         281 okt 25 20:32 public

Now all subdirectories made with Windows must be have the next rights:


and all files created with windows must have the next rights:


Is this possible?

don't know, but "force.." won't do what you expect if you do not set

create mask = xxxx
force create mask = xxxx

"force create mask" cannot subvert "create mask".
