Read-only after server re-build

Server 2008 R2. I did a server re-build, installed AD on it and it's a DC in a multi-DC domain. The data was originally stored in a different partition, so I basically re-formatted the old windows partition and put windows on it. The server came up just fine showing c: for windows and d: drive with all the data intact. I've recreated the shares on the server and all shares are just fine to access except home$. Users map to \\server\home$\user_name fine, have full rights to their own directory, but can't save anything in it. They go into the file, modify it, but can't neither save it as is nor do a Save As in the same folder. Even the manager who's got Full rights to every single folder in Home$ can't do nothing. What else to check? Thanks.

What are the SHARE permissions set to?

Right click the root share folder - properties
Sharing tab - Advanced sharing - Permissions button - make sure you have Authenticated Users with Modify...or in some cases people just put Everyone with Modify
