I am experiencing a strange problem when copying large files to certain
folders on a mounted Samba share (3.0.20b). I have also verfied the problem
occurs with Samba 3.0.20 and 20a.
I can copy the file (560MB) to most folder (for example /home/pc/temp) with
write speeds of about 7.5 - 10 MBytes / Sec and completes in a minute or two.
However when I copy the file to a folder named /home/pc/Vault, the copy run
extremly slow and takes about 50-60 minutes to complete.
The ownership/permission of the folders is the same (drwxrws---).
The problem only occurs for Windows to Samaba copies. I tested the copies
using scp between two linux system and the copy rate are the same between all
I looked in the smb.log file and did not see any errors or warnings.
