2008 File Server Admin Access

We recently migrated our shared drives from server 2003 to server 2008R2 with the file server role installed.  Since doing so, when browsing locally as a domain admin, a number of folders on the server pop up with the "You don't currently have permission to access this folder." error when accessed.  I click the Continue button and it then takes f-o-r-e-v-e-r to allow access.  NTFS permissions show that the local admin group has full rights to the folder.  I have check the local admin group and domain admins are listed there.  So I don't understand why this error ever shows up.

Does anyone have an idea on how to fix/speed this up?

Potentially important, when we moved the drives, we dropped them off the old VM and attached them to this current VM.
