Hi, I'm experiencing a weird problem with Windows 2000 SP4 running Services
for Macintosh. Some of my user when they drag a folder into a Macintosh share
to replace the existing folder, ther would receive a message telling them
either a file or a subfolder is in use. The weird this is nothing is in use,
I even login to to anther Mac using Administrator account and try to replace
this folder and I'm getting the same error message. It happen to some of the
folders for some users but not all. Also, when I try to have this user
replace this folder using a PC, there is no problem.
The folder security setting is correct and I did reset security settings for
all item in this folder but that did not help. Any idea? Thank you!

This may indicative of some Mac users connecting via AFP and other via
SMB from Mac OS X. The files in use may be the hidden "._DS_Store"
files. Search Versiontracker <http://www.versiontracker.com> for the
DS_Store Cleaner and see if this works for you.

Hope this helps! bill

Hi William, thanks for your answer. I'm not sure if this problem related to
the DS_Store file at all because the message I got related to "Files in use"
contain either the file name or a folder names that it thinks is in use. For
example, if I have a directory "X" and I have sub folders "1", "2", and "3"
under it, inside these sub folders I have many files. When I copy directory
"x" from My Mac OS X hard drive and replace directory "X" in the AFP Share, I
would receive message saying either my "1" sub folder cannot be replace other
file "y" inside "2" folder is in use. I got mix result but I don't know how
the problem was original created. I got the same result when replacing
directory "X" either using AFP or SMB. I don't have this problem when
replacing directory "X" from a PC.
