Do you have the option to view hidden files enabled in Windows?? (From
Windows Explorer > Tools > Folder Options > View tab > near the bottom
of the first page is the option for "Hidden files and folders"). A dot
(.) file in Windows is not automatically considered hidden unless the
Samba option you have set is enabled. The option I noted here will
effectively disable that option.
