What are the minimal rights a user can have to move, copy files in Active directory?  What groups can he be added into?  Does he need administrative access?

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.
