Hi, Whilst you have given us some info, you do not seem to have given us 
much. Just about all you have told is that you are running Samba 4.17.9 
On Debian 12 and that you are running it as a server, but what sort of 
server ?

Would it be possible for you to post the output of 'testparm -s' ? 
Sanitised if you must.
Also the output of 'ls -lad /storage/testg'

It will probably also help if you can tell us what the filesystem is.
