Users cannot save (only read) to Home Directory after move to new server.

We have moved the Home Directories of user from a Windows 2003 server to Windows 2008 server. The user(s) have full control to their new folder.  
The user can open files from their directory but cannot save them. See attachments.

Select the advanced tab and then select "allow permission to propergate to child objects" (or words to that affect) and click apply.

See if that helps.
Check the *Share* permissions of the share(s) through which the users are accessing their home folder; W2k3 by default only allows Read access for Everyone when creating a new share.
Change that to Full Control for the Everyone (or Authenticated Users) group, and control access with NTFS permissions only; there's no security gain in using Share permissions as well as NTFS permisisons.

I reapplied the permissions on the Home Direcory using File Servieces - Storage and Share Managemnet. I gave Administrator Ful Control & Useresread and wite permissions to the Home Directory. This fixed the problem.
