Server 2008 File Share Gives Access Denied to Domain Admin Account

I kept copying a file to a file share.  It would start to copy then it would say Access Denied.  Wait what?  I'm a domain admin.  I did the following and it seemed to fix the problem.

Original Permissions:
Administrators -> Full Control
Domain Admins -> Full Control
My Domain Admin Account -> Full Control

I added the following:
Everyone - Then check the following:
      Traverse folder / execute file
      List folder / read data
      Read attributes
      Read extended attributes

I then added:
CREATOR OWNER - Full Control

I copied the file to the shared drive again.  No error!
