Users can copy files into the test directory by

I think it should be 0775 with owner the Samba user and the Samba user's group (or at least that's how I have it on my server). What you mean they cannot recover them? They cannot open them anymore, once they are in the test folder?

Check also the folder's permissions and owner.

Thanks for reply.
We upload our autocad .dwg file to the test folder in our company.
I want that some can't cover or delete the files after they upload the files in the test folder.
And the dwg files were just read only.

Your first post indicates users have read/write access in this directory, while the last post indicates that other users just need read access.

If you have a samba-doc package available it supplies "Samba3-byExample" and "Samba 3 Howto & Reference Guide" or download them from here:
Your situation sounds a lot like the Drafting Office example in Samba3-ByExample. Look at section 1.2.1.

Pay attention to how the directory you share is created. For a globally writable share, you want to set the sticky bit on the directory. This will prevent one user from deleting the file of another user, which technically involves writing to the parent directory.

You can have a share set up that allows write access to one user, and allows read only access to other users, who if they aren't Linux users on the Samba server are mapped to guest on Linux & Nobody in Windows.
