    Can't Delete Files on Share Because They're "In Use"

    This issue is mainly on OS X but it's with a file on a Windows share so that's why I'm asking this here.

    My home file server is using Windows 10 Home to create a few shares with files on my hard drives in the PC. On my Mac, sometimes when I try to delete a file or modify it at all, it says that the file is in use, even though it's not. If I disconnect and reconnect to the share it will work fine after that. Usually it only happens after I make modifications to the file it will be "locked" even though OS X and Windows says it's not. Once I make the first save or any sort of modification, I can't delete or modify the file at all. After working with the permissions it seems that if I have any specific user account with any sort of permissions on the file (allows or denies) this will happen. If I only have user groups in the permissions list (again, allows and denies) everything works fine. I can make this work now, but does anyone know how I can solve this? Thanks!
