Copy/Paste not working for files

The user can copy/past to/from the clipboard but when trying to copy a file he can copy, but the past option is greyed out.  Also, when dragging/dropping a file from one location to another the file remains in the original location.

Is the copy paste issue true with all files?

If the file is being dragged from one hard drive to the same hard drive (different folder), copying it is the default action.   You have to cut it to move it or hold shift then drag.

All files that have been tested thus far.  It doesn't seem to matter whether they are copies or cut, the paste option is not available.

If you are dragging to a different drives, e.g. from a network to workstation, the default action is copy. You must delete the source.
The bigger issue is once copied they are unable to paste.  ??
Does user have rights to copy to target?

Is target a network share?

Can user paste to other targets on same drive?
Yes, all users have rights to the target.  But the issue isn't just to network shares.  I just tested on a couple of other workstations simply copying a file from documents and then attempting to paste to either the desktop or back to the same location.  Paste is not available.  Tested on a third workstation and paste IS available.  All of these machine are from the same disk image.
