Hi All,

I am using samba 3.5 on Synology NAS and I have just found out that I cannot copy from Windows7 large files (~100MB+) into a folder which is "under" a symbolic link on the samba server. The folder is on another volume than the original shared folder, therefore I am using "wide links=yes" in the settings.
There is no problem when copying files from Linux or Mac machine. Only Win7 is causing this trouble.

Thanks for any ideas,
