Hi Folks!
I didn't manage to find any solution yet for this problem, has this bug been addressed?
I am using h5py v2.10.0 on Windows 10, and I have a mounted folder via sshfs.
Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you in advance!

libhdf5 requires that the filesystem be posix compliant (the key thing is that once a low level write reports it is done, immediately reading back from disk gives what you just wrote).  I strongly suspect that the way the team drive is mounted this is not true and libhdf5 is getting confused.

This question may be better handled at as I think the limiting factor here is the c library (not the python bindings).
