file and sync issues after Windows update

We installed a slew of Windows updates last weekend and rebooted our SBS 2003 server. As a result many users are having difficulty renaming, deleting or synchronizing modified documents. Note we’re using the standard redirection for users’ ‘My Documents’ folders

When trying to delete or rename we get a standard:

‘Access is denied – Make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is not currently in use.’

When trying to synchronize offline changes the message is more to the effect of:

‘Cannot create a file if the file already exists’

NEW INFO: Same thing is happening in other shared folders - not just redirecdted 'my documents'

Any help will be greatly appreciated. This is causing havoc.

Thanks in advance…

You might want to check if disk quota is enabled on the drive with the data.
Open windows explorer and right click on the drive holding the data. Unselect enable disk quota on this drive and see if that resolves your problem for you.

Have you logged off and on again just to make completely sure? Sometimes the rights do not update without logging off and on again.
Do you know which patch numbers were installed?
Possibly this as well: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;898060

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

David - I'll give that another try - but I just found something in the system log:

Event 55 ntfs corruption. I ran chkntfs and sure enough the drive comes back as 'dirty' - we'll run chkdsk tonight and see what happens.

Thanks,
John

Before yuo run a full Chkdsk /r make sure you have a current and valid backup of all your data, just in case the chkdsk command changes key files or tampers with the underlying file system. Go in safe, know you have a backup.

If there are any permissions problems, these can easily be rectified by running the "Change User Permissison" wizard from Server Management Console > Users.  Just reapply the user template applicable to each user and select the "replace" option.

This one is solved - it was a corrupt NTFS partition and chkdsk fixed the problem - gave the credit to David because he got me pointed in the right direction. I was thinking network/ or permissions but it was file system.

Thanks everyone....
