win7 and network folder

We have one machine in our office where there is an issue for a user.

When he creates a new folder on our network share (based on windows 2003 server) sometimes he cannot add files in the folders he creates for up to 30 minutes

This also seems to lock him out of files or saving over files hes working on

The issue is specific to his machine because logging in as himself on another network win 7 boxes produces none of these results when working on the share

I have checked all permissions but cannot find the root of the cause, it is clearly something on his machine but do not know where to look at this point?

Any thoughts before we reformat?

Have you tried a different user on the troubled machine? Could be corrupted user profile or corrupted OS.
