| You say file server. Does that mean you are using Samba? If so, I

Or 755, to match the other examples.

It's enough to kill the particular smdb serving the client machine, which can
be obtained from the smbstatus command. We tend to prefer this when fixing a
problem for an individual user.
Of course, a restart is the sensible thing to fix a fproblem affecting
all the users.
