locating and creating  file windows 2008 Server R2 using WIndows 10

I feel a l little embarrassed asking this question but  I searched the net for a couple of days with no solution

I created a share on our  windows 2008 Server and and then created a  folder (lets call it Newly Created).
I moved files into this folder from another location and all was fine.
Then another user created 2 folders within that folder( lets call it folder a-m and folder j-z) inside the Newly Created.
I am able to create/delete and edit files on the l-z folder, but the a-m I cannot create a folder in that directory.
I can create a folder in an already created folder within a-m but not a new folder.
j-z folder allows me to change or add/delete anything in that folder.

I am not sure what is happening, I am able to say new folder and it hightlights the text to name it and then it disappears. I actually see the folder get created and see it disappear before being able to rename it.
Few things I have tried, checked permission of folder againt l-z and all match.
Tried different users, doesn't work for a windows 10 user or administrator.
Checked to ensure there is not an invalid character in folder name.
I am at my wits end and need to resolve asap.
thanks

Procmon to the rescue

This ms/sysinternals tools is a life saver, and will give detailed information on were files are and what is accessing them.

Also, don't forget to check the SHARE settings as well as the standard security

Oh, one other thing, after reading a bit more closely, try resetting the inheritance and forcing it on the child objects.  That would address and security issues.

no not really off hand. It is very detailed, so It is a matter of finding the file access you are using and following the thread.

If someone else has one I would read it :)
