I have a file server (2003 Storage edition). There are a few shares. Setup with Full control as Shared persmissions and Modify on NFTS for a security group.
Almost from day one, users complaint that, once in a while, they get a message similar to this:"File has been modified by another user, would you like to save a copy or overwrite? when they work with file like Excell 2003.  In Access 2003 database, a message may appear Could not save; currently locked by another user. Similar behariour occurs with folders.
I would blame Access internal settings if the issue did not span other files
It is a small office, so there is no change that the file/folder/database are opened by someone else. That includes me checking Shared Folder Management utility.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
