Cannot Move/Copy/Archive messages to a PST

Hello,
I am running Exchange 2007, with most clients using OWA and a few hundred using Outlook 2003-2007.  Mail is stored on the Mailbox servers and the users do not have PST's.  I have several users who are now trying to create Archive.PST's and PST's.  They cannot move single messages or multiple messages to any Archive or additional PST.  These users are spanned on several databases/storage groups.  They receive the following message when trying to move messages into a PST/Archive: "The Item Cannot Be Moved.  It was either already moved or deleted, or access was denied".  I have followed all of the suggestions on this site and nothing works.  The PST's or Archives are newely created, have been recreated and placed locally where they have full permission.  Users can move messages freely if they do so in the mailbox, but once it is going to a local PST/Archive, I receive that error message.  PLEASE HELP!

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. 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.

Is there a Group Policy or was the feature for Office/ Outlook setup to prevent users from untilizing PST's?
For example, Outlook 2007 can be configured to:  
Prevent users from adding new content to exsiting PST files  -  "This setting prevents users from adding any new content to PST files linked to their profiles."

I could check for these settings being enabled within your GP's or even the registry of your Outlook client.

More Info:
This only happens on Outlook 2007 clients.  I can do the move/copy/archive with no problem using Outlook 2003.  There is no group policy setup to prevent this.  This happens with existing PST's and new PST's.  All of the mail items sit on the actual Exchange 2007 Mailbox server.

Run setup.exe /admin on the Office 2007 setup to ensure that it wasnt setup with that feature, it sounds like it is enabled for 07 clients.

I found the solution, thanks to GWMerrell for leading me down the right path:
Go into the registry to edit the following key:
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\PST
Change the value of  PSTDisableGrow to 0
It is set to 1 by default if you are having this problem
