Windows 2008 Drag and Drop issue

Trying to figure out why users intermittently cannot drag and drop files/folders from one location to another on the server drives.  They get a file or folder in use error message.  We know for sure those files/folders are not in use.  When I asked them to use the keyboard shortcuts it works fine (Ctrl-x and Ctrl-v).  Cannot replicate the problem from the server console.  These are just user files (Docs, spreadsheets, etc) and it happens to multiple users.

Server is running in a virtual environment.  Updated and rebooted, nothing in the event logs.

Weirdest thing!

Dragging and dropping on a server share is not a good idea.  Especially when they move a folder.
If a file is open by someone or in use they won't e able to complete whatever they trying to do.

Should be able to perform when no files are open however.

This could be the client side issue rather than server. What happens if you press Esc key (hold the key) and do the drag and drop? usually it will re-enable the drag and drop function.

Think it's a server issue.  Happening to several users.  I've looked when they get the error condition and the files are not open.  Wait a bit and then they can move them.  Tried "net config /autodisconnect:-1" and so far today everything has been fine.  Will be there tomorrow to run some more tests to see if I can replicate the problem.  We just replaced a user's computer who experiences it fairly often and she is having the same problem with the new computer.
