Suddenly, all my Vista users on the network can not create or delete a folder or file in their Home directory.  Anyone else have this problem?

We have a LAN with Active Directory 2003 native and we redirect the home directorys to the network.  Last week all was well.  This week all the Vista users can not create or delete folders or files from their home diretories.  The permissions haven't changed, we checked that first.  The users can create and delete files and folders in other network locations.  Has anyone seen this problem?

Have you checked the share permissions (not NTFS permissions) of the redirected folders root dir?

Yes, the Domain Users group has Read, Change and Full Control.  And, only The individual user has full control at the redirected folder level.

It looks like we solved this mystery.  Microsoft sent out a security patch that caused Vista to be more secure.  Under Windows XP when you gave the user full control rights to a redirected My Documents directory, Creator Owner was implied.  Now with Vista and AD 2003 you have to explicitly assign Creator Owner  and System right to the redirected My Documents directory in order for the user to add/delete/modify any folder or file.  We called Microsoft support on this and they were not aware of this.

But we are working now.
