"Not enough space" error on samba share

Problem: Trying to access new NTFS samba share on Ubuntu Server 10.04 from Vista SP2 machine. Copying from server share to local hard drive works fine, but copying from local hard drive to server share gives an error: "Not enough space on volume, try removing files to free up space" Share has ~500GB free, copying works both ways from Ubuntu on local machine...
Solution: Fix NTFS permissions. The way I fixed this was; boot into XP on the server, right-click on share, click properties, sharing tab, check box to "share this drive on the network." This fixed the NTFS permissions on the share and I am now able to copy to and from it.
