I had had one strange behavior in windows. Sorry - may be it i windows problem , may be not, may be screwed admin that forgot some principles of MS network administration (me,
I have a FAT32 partition on linux box, there 're folders with all users documents inherited yet from windows system. It is mounted with 775 default permissions. It is shared as "homes"
under samba service with path /[fat32]/homes/%u. When user (also me) connected for the first time from win98 machine to samba logon server, windows passed through authentication, logon script execution, while all of a sudden, it likely found a home folder on server and quickly pushed the user's profile to there ....Something was suspicious in such a smoothy proccession.
When I looked into my home folder where that bitch pushed it's (my) dirty profile....Ah..Almost all the catalogs and subdirs were in place, but no any file that was in them before. It didn't overwrite, it just erased all files in all subdirs (all old My_Documents or OutlookExpress files)and placed new instead. I 've spent two days after for "manual incremental restoration" partly by recovering software, partly from not-so-up-to-date backup on cd.
Ho, I should get any 10000 points of EXP for that titanic job. If I'd have only understood what happened. Any ideas ?
