it could be an antivirus scan on the server that is locking the files

I already checked that posiblity, I disabled the antivirus and also checked the quarantine folder.

Also,  I moved the cluster's shared drive to the pasive node, for a short time the folders were visible, while they were visibe I copied them to another folder, the copied folders are still visble, the source folders disappeared after a while

Any suggestions?

My understand is your cluster is a shared storage cluster, and the folders are created on the shared partition. right or not?
You folder disappear might be the cluster failover happened, pls check your cluster configuration.
