Hi there,

I'm pretty keen to work out where this bug is coming from, and although I don't know if it is definitely Samba or not, it is a possible candidate.

I am using an ICYBOX IB-NAS4220-B which is running version 3.0.25a of Samba.

I am connected to my home network via a gigabit switch with a gigabit connection going to 2 machines that both replicat this problem, both of which are Vista, but with that said I believe the error exists in XP it is just not visible via an error message.

Anyway, I have some shares setup on my NAS device, one for Music, one for Documents and one for Pictures.  I have mapped these to network drives and they work great, as expected.  Now the problem occurs when I map these network drives to my personal folders, such as "My Documents", the second I move the location Windows keeps notifying me of a corrupt recycle bins on *all* of the network drives situated on the Samba NAS.

I have tried changing the authentication level of Windows as shown by the following article,

http://www.builderau.com.au/blogs/codemonkeybusiness/viewblogpost.htm?p=339270746

but this does not resolve the issue.  One other strange issue I have noticed from a development perspective is that the drives have at times become unavailable through enumeration, the only way I have managed to get them back is to remove and add them again, *but* that doesn't stop them working! Strange I know!

Unfortunately I have no idea how to update my NAS version of Samba and can't get the company who make it to offer any such advice, so any information would be greatly appreciated!

Nick.

I must also add that mapping the personal folders via UNC path produces the same problem.  XP Does not display any errors with the recycle bin but does produce problems with enumerating the drives sometimes.
