Using 2003 Server. Cannot create a folder on a shared drive. Getting File System error 16389

I am running 2003 server.  I ahve one drive with 20 shared folders on it.  On one of the folders I am having an issue.  I cannot create a new folder in one of the shared folders I get this error "File System error 16389". I can create new folders in the other shared folders except this one.  I can move, copy folders into it, delete folder,. But not a new folder. Any ideas?

         *Are you able to create a new folder when you stop the share?
          *Schedule a bootup chkdsk on drive and restart the computer

        *Also try breaking the inheritance on folder properties and take ownership.

Well this is what I just did. I copied contents of folder "sound" to another folder I created on the drive without sharing it. I still get the same error. But there are no permissins set at all. Just the same contents.
But I can still create a new folder everywhere else.

        *No you wont need to reset permissions.
        *Right-Click the folder>Sharing and security>Click security tab>Advanced>Click Owner tab
        *Add your account here and click "replace owner on subcontainers"

If none works, create a new folder, copy the entire content of your folder to here. Then delete your old folder. Rename your new one with same name of old. Then share it and set your permissions carefully.
