Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I Have a client running with a Windows Server standard 2008 R2 that is hosting a series of shared network files. The issue I have is that when 1 particular user is opening / viewing these files.

Once the user is done with the files and has logged off / shutdown the files are still showing as open in the shares and storage management console. The stay open until I manually close the connections.

This only seems to be happening from 1 user and more specifically when the use their Windows 8 Pro notebook. The user also has an old windows 7 notebook which does not cause this issue.

I don't know where to start looking here so any advise would be great
