In a recent post I explained a couple of concepts and came up with a full working cut and paste example. Even though it is in C# and the example adds some features (like a response-delay) it shows the concepts well. See this post http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/.NET/Q_24332302.html?#24170318 (will go to the right comment).

To be able to save a file from a dragged item from list view(i think it would be file name) and dropped on the explorer window, you would need to write a Shell Extension. This is a very advanced topic and is usually tackled in C++.
