thanks for the help, now its not possible to copy .mp3 .avi etc files to the 
shares but, I have done this for the home directories of the users and we 
are using roaming profiles. If you try to copy .mp3 or .avi files its not 
possible. If you copy them to your desktop from somewhere and log out, 
because the profiles are roaming clients tries to write them to the server 
and succeed! How can this happen?!?
