How is samba configured is it mounting the windows drive on linux ...

You try restarting the samba service...

You are using fedora or ubuntu or any other distribution...??

thanks for your quick reply prayag,

this is SAMBA on Debian 5 32 bit OS, it is mounted as shared network drive on Windows XP

if i do restart the samba service then all of the other user in the company will be affected (that is why idon't go into that option).

Code:

sudo /etc/init.d/samba reload

or

sudo smbd reload

it will reload smb service without affecting connected users
