Im seeing files on samba that are deleted


I just noticed yesterday that when I connect to a samba share with another computer I can see file names at 0kb that were deleted on the main computer.

These files cannot be seen on the main computer but only through the samba share.

I find this very strange. Does this usually happen for some reason and how can I remove the files completely since they cannot be found on the actual computer? Or are they somehow just in memory of my client computer?

It seems those empty files are somewhere in cache or it's showing just icons. I think second PC is Windows one, where you can see those files, so do one thing, unmap (disconnect) the network drive and map it agian. Hope this will solve the pb.
