Hi Daniel and mueller, firstly thank you for the fast response.

Daniel, You saved my day, it works !.
what happen here, why i must set the sticky bit for each directory  ?

This is the funny history about this.
Client A, B, and C share "tangled threads" excel works about 3.4 GB.
They working sequencely,
if client A  has finished, then client A will copy all that 3.4 GB to
client B and client C notebook with a flash disk xD.
as well client B and C, they doing that carousel ritual each day. :))

Finally we create samba file sharing to change their ritual. :)

Now, i'm worried about the virus issue which someday can infecting the
file, "windows client here".
Is samba is the correct way to solve a problem like this ?

Mmm.. actually, we also have a 2nd scenario to convert their ritual to
revision control using git.

Thinking out of the box
