When we moved her files to a Windows share, some of her files, though visible, were inaccessible. (Why Windows even allowed the files to be written without some kind of warning is another mystery).

Once on a Windows machine I ended up with a filename that had a trailing 
space. Nothing would get rid of it. Nothing. Every disk utility I tried 
found the file with no problem, but deleting the file failed because the 
trailing space wasn't recognized by the OS. The File-That-Wouldn't-Die 
lived on until the disk was reformatted.
