Disabling left-click drag and drop operations within Explorer/My Computer
would be a great way to achieve this, but I don't know of a way to do it
without writing a separate app to trap the drag/drop operation.
Still allowing the Right-Click, context menu driven drag and drop while
blocking the left-click drag and drop would force the user to make a choice
of copying or pasting and would prevent the 'shaky hand' left-click drag and
drop move operations that happen by accident.
