[Samba] File already in use?

Do you, by chance run a virus scanner and  Win2000 or WinXP?


Windows 2000 and XP have a tendency to examine files in a directory when you
open an Explorer window.


This triggers the virus scanner, which, in turn, opens the file and keeps it
locked until it has finished scanning the file.


I have no experience with Linux virus scanners (I still scan on user-side
only), but the same problem could apply on the Linux side.


I hope this helps.
