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 have the same issue here. Manually stopping and starting SMB service in gui helped.


    Is there any conclusion about reasons? I have invested a large amount of hours...and I dont want to run into the same issue again :(

  • 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.

    No, the recycle bin was turned off. I will try to investigate upon this hint. Lets see what we get. Keep u updated...
