That is "normal" situation on a samba share that has (windows) "illegal"
characters in it's name.
eg: "CSI: Next Session" is illegal because of the ":" and will be
translated to something like you have seen on the windows box.

I am not too concerned with the existence of a tilde in the filename. If the
filename had been created per your example, I would have expected Windows to
display it as "CSI_Ne~1". A recent directory shows in Linux as
NCIS:_Los_Angeles as it should. My concern is that I cannot see (and therefore
manipulate or delete) these directories in Linux. Linux will not show the
directory names or inodes. Windows does, but the names are illegal and so won't
operate on them.
I will keep an eye out for the creation of any more such directories but cron
took care of the syslog files long before I noticed that the directories were
Anyone: Any clue how to delete the directories besides formatting the partition?
