It has to do with the permissions on the folder.  You must have permissions to create but not to modify.  Check the perms on the folder for your user.

Also try to a different folder.

Is this a mapped dive ?

Just enter the mapped drive..and try to create a new folder and see the result most prob it is a permission issue...to be able to write to a mapped drive..the shared folder must have both the share permission and the NTFS permissions set accordingly.
