I have a client who recently started using Mac server Lion.
The file sharing has been setup with Samba and all users can access the shared files.

The problem they are having is, one user using Vista and when he drags a folder into a shared folder on the Mac server, it creates another folder with the same folder name except the first letter is missing.
Example: He drags a folder into the shared folder named "Testing" and another folder named "esting" is generated automatically.

Also, when creating new folders in the shared folders, the first letter of the folder name disappears and he can't open the folder unless he refreshes the view. The strange thing is, when the view is refreshed, the folder name is the way it should be.

Any ideas??

Thank you in advance.
QUOTE Thanks
