I do understand and I have done my homework with regards to the file lock
even before I posted here.  I apologize for not providing all the info all
at once.  I find that if I do, a lot is missed so I provide as it becomes

In performing my test, I created another share identical to what you see
above and made sure that no one else is connected to it.  I simply dragged
and dropped a file from a Windows 7 to the share and I got error 0x80070021
on the following cases.

01)  copying a new file into the share
02)  overwriting an existing file

Creating a new file does not seem to show this issue--as expected.

Like you, I also appreciate how much Rowland has helped me.  I have been on
that end of the line before and I know the hard work and patience it needs.
