Hi Rowland,
I believe the problem is in the time to delete the file.
Because when I try to delete the file through windows I can't.
I give the delete the file some and if I give a f5 it goes back to the same
So I think that office is actually deleting it, but samba doesn't let the
file be deleted.
I made a cat here.
I used the hide file and put in the cron the find /data -name *.tmp -delete
until I managed to find a definitive solution.
I'm testing a windows server 2012 without antivirus.
In my smb.conf, did you find something that shouldn't be there?
Yours sincerely,
Gabriel O. Franca
