How to set folder permissions for single users

We would like to set permissions for certain people in our domain to be able to read and modify, create and delete files if need be.
But not able to move files or folders.

We have a user that tends to drag and drop folders mostly into other shared folders UN-voluntarily. They have a heavy click finger.
What permissions do we have to set for this user?

The rights you want them to have (modify, create) allows them to drag and drop them to other folders where they have similar permissions. You would have to exclude the "create" right to the other folders so they can't drag them there--the other folders (can't create them there). And if the files and folders already exist where they drag them to (in other words will over-write them) then the modify right will allow them to do that too. This is a pretty good link to red, very basic but also clear that may help you better understand what each right allows http://www.techrepublic.com/article/windows-101-know-the-basics-about-ntfs-permissions/ as such you may want to test using the "advanced permissions" on the folders that files are dragged to and add the "deny"  "create folders/append data" right. Make sure that you are very careful with deny rights -- make it very narrow--applied to just this one user, making sure you don't deny yourself (like if you used a group to deny). Deny right are always tricky so be careful and test one right at a time.
