This is not a problem with Sama, rather a bug in Windows 2000 and XP.


> Hello:
>    compare to win98, win2000 now has "web style folders".
>    when browsing files, if click at a media file which is known format,
>    2000 will split the window, so u can play it directly at left side of
>    the window. at this mode windows can not delete or rename media files
>    (ex: wav,mov,mp3), BC4 windows will lock the file as read only when
>    u clicking the file, and samba refuse  rename or delete the locked
>    file.

>    i try to use other win2000 as file server,and win2000 client works fine.

>    if i change the default folder style of win2000 from web to traditional
>    (from control panel -> folder option -> general ).
>    then every thing works fine.

>    i found discussion about this before at mail list, but it seems no
>    solution until now.

> Best Regards,
