I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Are you referring to rights to move and copy files on a file server?  

For a copy operation, the user will need write permissions on the destination directory.

For a move operation, the user will need delete permissions on the source directory and write permissions on the destination directory.

You can assign these permissions to admin and non-admin groups alike; a user does not need to be an administrator to copy or move a file.

Hope this helps.
