    Hey everyone, A while ago I updated all the Windows 10 PCs in our office to Creators Update. Let's imagine a situation, where I am accessing a file from Mac OS X Sierra using SMB. I access smb://pcname, mount the drive I want to access and access a .txt file inside the drive. After a few consecutive saves (Ctrl-S) I receive an error inside the OS X which says it cannot save the file. If I try to delete the file, I receive another error, saying the file is in use, even though it is not. Windows 8 or 8.1 PCs don't have the same issue, even though all of the PCs have the WannaCry protection update.I am sure it's not a Sierra issue, because before the Creators Update, everything worked fine.
    Any help debugging the issue would be greatly appreciated.

    permissions of folder in win 10.
    2 places to change.. works in one of them.

    just clear cacl's on the shared folder and reshare usually works.

    Actually the issue went away when I tried to connect to the shared drive from Sierra with cifs://pcname.
