Thank you for the super quick response. I was not aware that they were
stored in an EA. Is there anyway to see the contents of the EA? (attr -l
shows nothing). This is an XFS filesystem. I'm pretty sure the user
told me that those files were only put on the server on the 5th but I
will verify that.
So if a file is created outside samba I assume it will use the POSIX
dates right? That's confusing....
