I believe your original message said you wanted a directory that users 
could only write to but not read?

On samba server:

sudo mkdir test
sudo chown root.root test
sudo chmod 733 test

Now anyone should be able to copy a file to test directory, but not read 
it. Note - this will only work if you use copy in a cmd prompt. GUI file 
explorer tools typically want to read dir content first - not possible 
with these permissions.

Perhaps you should explain what you're trying to achieve - there may be 
better ways to do it.
