[Samba] Problems with samba and profile syncing from various windows versions


I've got an old samba installation, now thanks to you all - successfully
upgraded to ubuntu 16.04. Samba is the packaged version

The problem I have is that for some users their profiles do not sync
properly. They seem to upload onto the server, and then at the next logon
some files that were deleted by the user come back. It is more per user
basis or per workstation basis - this is hard to diagnose right now. For
most of the users everything works very fine. The problem can pop up on a
windows 10 workstation, 7 or even an XP (yes, we have some crap like this
still running).

I cannot seem to find anything relevant in the logs. My smb.conf goes
below. The profiles go into [profiles].

Question: How can I analyse and diagnose such issue? What should I look at?
Are windows workstations to blame or some setting on the server?
