Permissions on new file server

Last Modified: 2013-12-02
II just set up a new file server. I copied all of the files from the old server and put them on the new one. I have looked at the security settings on both servers, and they mimic each other. However, when a user tries to write or create a folder, they get the message access denied. They are able to see all of their files, but cannot write to the folders. Please help.
