I'm using Samba 3.6.9 on a CentOS 6.5 machine and want to enable the 
'recycler'-feature. So I added following lines to the [global]-section 
of my smb.conf:

         vfs object = recycle
         recycle:repository = .deleted/%U
         recycle:keeptree = Yes
         recycle:touch = Yes
         recycle:versions = Yes
         recycle:maxsixe = 0
         recycle:exclude = *.tmp
         recycle:exclude_dir = /tmp
	recycle:directory_mode = 0777
	recycle:subdir_mode = 0777

After that I restarted SMB-Services, the clients and even the server by 
itself. Unfortunately, the folder '.deleted" will be created but no 
deleted file nor folder will be moved to that directory. The file 
'/usr/lib64/samba/vfs/recycle.so' exists, so the installation seems to 
be okay.

Is there anyone who has an idea why it doesn't work?

Best regards and thank you in advance.
