Crashes while opening previously used files in a network share

Hello everyone, I'm experiencing an annoying issue on SolidWorks 2017 SP2. Since I'm working on assembly files over a shared folder (along with other buddies), I find myself struggling with sudden crashes (or ever-lasting loading icon) on the files when me or someone else is going to open them. This happens only if the very file has been recently opened by another user collaborating on the same shared folders. Once I reboot the Samba server where the files are hosted, the problem disappear. Now, I realize that rebooting the server can cause major disservice among the non CAD-Related user, nevertheless I can't do it on daily basis. It seems like the files used concurrently couldn't just get "released" from the previous write-read usage. All the system are based on Windows7 x64. Can someone help me?
