Something moving files and folders on server share - anybody ever had this?

Couldn't find Windows 2K Server section so hope it's OK to post here - Our file server runs Windows 2000 Server and over the years, we have occasionally noticed files and folders appearing in other folders. This doesn't happen often and normally I would put it down to an accident but the way it is happening cannot be done accidentally. All users are competent and would know if they had cut a folder, moved to another folder and pasted it and for such a small company, this would be a completely pointless task. This is why I am assuming it is something rather than somebody, so lets concentrate on what could be causing this.
I have since applied auditing but it is so intermittent I doubt this will help. I just wanted to know if anybody has had a similar problem.
Note: I recently installed a new high capacity SATA drive and moved all data to this, so it can't be an issue with the drive. The only things actually running on it are -
