Re: [vox-tech] Filename suffix dependent deletion problem with Samba

Quoting Peter Salzman (p@dirac.org):

Just an idea based on attempting to Web-search your problem:

Try (temporarily) setting 'log level = 10' in smb.conf and restart the
daemons.  Then, re-try the deletion operation.  Then, examine your
logfiles to see what clues emerge about the root cause.

I stress 'temporarily' because log level 10 chews up disk space at an
impressive clip.

(Disclaimer:  Haven't had occasion to admin Samba since 1999, so the above 
is all I'm likely to usefully offer.)
