    • Deleted files/folders keep coming back

      Hi all,

      I have a mounted SMB on my linux box and have copied a bunch of files from my local machine to the mounted OMV share.
      I then tried to delete a folder and its contents and it disappeared. When I re-enter or hit refresh though, the folder and files appear again.

      What could this be and how can I rectify it as I'm trying to cleanup a massive set of files / folders?

      EDIT: I do have full read / write permissions on all folders / shares. I know this as I double checked and I copied those files to that share.

      Thanks so much...

      EDIT: if I connect via OSX I can delete files and folders. If I connect via Ubuntu I can't. Same user account on both machines. Does that help identify the issue?

    • I don't have an answer because I can't replicate this issue, but I do have a question.

      In your SMB config, do you have the recycle bin turned on?
      I don't (the recycle bin is off). When I delete files with a user that has write access they stay deleted.
