Setting limits on moving data on a Windows Network

We have a Windows 2003 network and our end users use Windows XP Pro and a lot of data gets moved by accident and we would like to see if we can set permissions to deny the moves.  They still need read/write access, and the ability to create new folders.  Can this be controlled in AD, in the folder permissions, in a Group Policy and can someone please provide the examples?

If they have both R/W access and can create folders, ten I do not think that you can prevent moves.

Moves within a volume are instantaneous, since only the directory pointer is changed.
Please provide more info on your exact problem.

I hope this helps !

We have users that drag and drop folders to the wrong locations (different folders or servers) and we want to prevent this.  They should be able to read and write data in the subfolders but not drag and drop/move the subfolders.

I think I may have found the option with research with permission options.  You did answer so I am giving credit to you.
