Edge stores additional information in alternative data streams, what
Samba does not provide by default. To enable ADS support, add the
"streams_xattr" VFS module to your share's section:
    vfs objects = streams_xattr

I verified this on Windows 10 1709 (all updates applied) and Samba 4.7.0.

However, this VFS module currently works only on shares that use POSIX
ACLs. If your share has "vfs objects = acl_xattr" enabled, which is
always the case on Samba DCs, the share does not work. I opened a BZ
against the "streams_xattr" VFS module to track this:


PS: To help users with the same problem finding this information: The
Edge error message in English is:
{file_name} might have been moved or deleted. Retry|Cancel|View downloads.
