    Hi John,

    Thanks for your reply. I had already tried using this, although I use
    2775 for my directory mode to ensure the group is retained. Unfortunatly
    it did not correct the issue.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Yea I have been checking the permissions on the files each time and they
    appear fine, open in openoffice fine also. They also work ok after samba
    is restarted which is why I initially thought it was to do with lock
    files.

    Hi All,

    I have heard that there is a limit on the amount of saves you can have
    on a file, but can not find any evidence to back this up (except for my
    problems!). All files that I have been having these issues with, are
    files that have been saved many many times (100+).

    This happens from Word and Excel.

    Has anyone heard of this? or have any links to pages that talk about
    this?

    Help appreciated.

    Regards,
    Mark

    I should also mention, simply saving the document as another filename in
    the same folder makes this issue go away.

    When this has happened to us saving it to a new filename has fixed the
    issue as well. I have one question though. Is your data on an external
    box mounted via NFS? I am using NFS for my public and private drives.
    Sorry if this was asked before in the thread.

    Hi John,

    No it is all internal storage, mirrored SATA drives to be precise.

    I believe this is a Microsoft issue, but can not find any evidence to
    prove this.

    I wonder, do people have the same issue with Windows servers? anybody
    seen this that is running a windows server fileshare?
