Cannot rename folder

I have a really odd permissions issue that has kind of stumped me&

We have a user who is unable to rename folders on a network share.   He receives an access denied error box.  

-The user has full NTFS permissions on the entire folder structure, and can create and delete folders, but is unable to rename them.

-The network share is a user folder where his local My Documents folder is redirected to.  The network share is mapped with a login script as U:\

-The same thing occurs even if you browse directly to the share with the UNC path.

- If the user logs into another workstation he is able to rename folders, in that location, normally.

- When logged in as admin on the users workstation I am able to rename folders in that location.

-I created a new profile for the user on the workstation and the problem still occurs.

-Workstation OS is XP Pro SP3

-Server OS is W2k3 SP2


Somehow it is the combination of that user on this machine which wont allow him to rename a folder, even a newly created one.  He can create, move and delete the folders without any problem; he just cant rename them.  This workstation was migrated from another domain using ADMT but it migrated successfully and hasnt had any other issues so I dont really see how that could be related.  We migrated 150 other workstations and this is the only place we have seen this issue.  

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Mark

That does sound strange.  You might try disjoining the machine from the domain, rebooting, deleting the computer object from AD, then rejoining it.

Make sure you have the correct password for a local administrator account before disjoining the machine.

Hello
  Probably user has profile setting problem. You notified that you created a newer profile on workstation. I recommend you to delete user's profiles both workstation and server at the same time if you keep profiles on server. Also you must to sure  that there is no older profile still standing on WS after create newer e.g. userprofile.bak . If  not then   re-image this workstation as a clean installation will fix your problem.

Disjoining the workstation and deleting the AD object didnt do it.  The user profiles are all local, there are no cached server profiles and I did clean them off before creating the new one, so that is a no go as well.  

I was hoping to avoid wiping and redeploying the workstation, though it is beginning to look like that is the only option.  Any other ideas?

At this point I would either re-image or do a repair install of Windows.

Well ,  try this solution ;
add that key to the registry;
To do it manually go to Start >> Run and type Regedit
When the Registry Editor opens expand each of these keys in the left hand pane

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CSC

Right click CSC key and go to New >> Key,then name it Parameters
Then click on the Parameters key and in the right hand pane,right click and create a New >> DWORD Value and name it FormatDatabase.
Then right click FormatDatabase and Modify,in the window that opens enter 1 in the Value Data box and make sure the Hexadecimal radio button is checked and hit OK.
Exit Regeedit and restart computer.

Rebuilding the CSC database didn't do it either, nor did a repair on the OS.  In the end I put a new drive in and reinstalled the OS which resoved the problem.

Thanks for the help,
