#4140 closed Bug report (wontfix)

Drag and drop in server window causes move instead of copy

Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Vista SP1


When you drag and drop a file or folder(s) on the right side (Server window) from one directory to another, Windows shows a little plus sign next to the mouse arrow -> user expects that the file(s) will be copied.
Instead, after releasing the mouse button, a mv command is carried out.

The same behaviour occurs when Shift or Ctrl-key is pressed additionally. Files are always moved, never copied.

The FTP protocol does not support file copy. Also, it is technically impossible to get rid of the little plus sign in this situation without causing it to be missing in others. The Windows API is a bit shortsighted in this regard.
