Samba Server little help :)

So I am using Samba for the past few months and it works great. We have multiple samba users and I have assigend all the necessary permission to each and every required directory. . My Samba version 3.6.9-169.el6_5 and Operating System is Centos 6.5.One of my samba share is as follows-----

path = /media/data
browseable = yes
guest ok = no
writable = yes
create mode = 7777
directory mode = 7777
veto files = / ~* /

But for the past few days,I am facing a problem....problem is when a samba user creates multiple directory in samba share, out of
which some of the directory name changes automatically to TS4GG~ , GTRSS~ etc etc or random name.Can anyone please tell me what is wrong. Thank you.

Total guess, maybe you have accidentally changed the mangled_names setting in smb.conf
