As a slight tangent-  if you have upgraded from Samba 3.x to 4.x, check 
your min and max protocol settings.  Samba 4 adds support for SMB3 but 
you may need to set max protocol to SMB2 for Win 10 support.  Win 7 
doesn't use SMB3 so won't try to use it even if enabled on the server.  
Window 10 and Samba 4 don't seem to negotiate SMB3 properly - at least 
with versions I tested. You don't want to upgrade from Samba 3 to 4 and 
inadvertently add new variables.
