NTFS File Permissions - Access Denied

After 2 years with no problems suddenly yesterday domain users started getting access denied
when trying to write to network folders.  Only admin can write, cerate, etc.  users can only read.
Checked AD and event log - no errors.  Checked drive folder permissions and security setting not changed.  Went on client machines as Domain Admin and works when drive mapped using admin.
Any ideas?

if you can take the ownership, probably try to take the ownership and then reapply all rights once again.

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

I removed shares today because I read other postings indicating that shares wern't needed if the
domain users already have drive / folder access under seurity.  Was that wrong?

I'm beginning to think there is a problem in the AD.  The user group shows full control under effective permissions for the folder in question.  All users have read permissions for the full drive.  Still get access denied for all users other than administrator.

OK,  Looks like problem is resolved.  Here is what I did.  On server were network folders live checked
root drive share and set everyone to read.  Went to shared folder Marketing and removed Marketing group and re-added with full control share.  Now working again.  All users can see drive and all folders
but only specific groups of users have read/write/create rights to certain folders.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.  Must have been a hiccup in AD.  Removing and recreating shares was the fix
