Cannot rename a new folder

Hello everybody,
on our file server (Windows 2003 SP1), when I create a folder I cannot rename it the way I want, but it stays with the default name "New Folder". Even later I cannot rename it. I can delete it though. The same happens even with the domain administrator account.
Any ideas?

Thank you in advance

Have you tried booting into Safe Mode and checking to see if you can rename the folders?

Also, can you add/remove content from the folders?

grouptandi,
it is not easy to boot in safe mode because it's a production server. I might try later, but for the moment I did not. I can add/remove content from the folder as well as removing the folder itself.
