I would try and remove the share, take ownership of the folder, then share it again and add appropriate permissions. If that doesn't help, maybe chkdsk /r or /f would be a good plan as a next step. Could be a slight corruption in the file system.

Is the folder on a local disk within the server, or a NAS? If it's a NAS it might just help restarting it as a first step.
