The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 5156
JPEG copy error from XP x64 client
Last modified: 2008-01-16 05:07:41 UTC
When trying to copy a directory of image files from a Samba share (running on OS X 10.4.11) using a Windows Xp Professional x64 client and the windows explorer GUI the folder is copied, but the contents are not.
I have noticed that if I remove the jpegs from the directory then the contents are copied down as expected. So for example If I have 2 jpeg files and 2 targa files in a directory then try to copy the directory then only the directory is copied, if I remove the two jpegs then the targa files are copied down too.
I have repeated this process with several different images formats and it only seems to occur when jpegs exist in the directory.
I have tested with many different jpegs so I know that the jpegs are not corrupt.
One strange thing is that if I copy the files using DOS and XCOPY then it copies the directory contents as well and then I can use explorer to copy the files as expected.
Also if I enter the directory with the jpegs then explorer sometimes creates thumbnails of the jpegs and creates it's thumbs.db file and then I can copy folder and it's contents as well. Other times the thumbnails do not get created and explorer crashes.
Another thing I have noticed is that if explorer successfully creates the thumbnails then I cannot delete the jpegs files using either Finder or Explorer, I get an error reporting that the file is in use. The only way to remove it is to switch to root and delete it using the command line on OS X.
I hope this bug report is helpful.
Please try with 3.0.28, 3.0.10 is very old.

I don't really have the power to do that as it is automatically updated via the Apple Software Update.
Well, then please contact your Apple support.
