Just installed Win7, and i noticed when i move a file/folder, it actually copies, then deletes. I noticed because if i want to move 40 GB, I must have 40 GB free space.
On XP, if I am moving folders and files within the same partition, no matter size, are moved instantly. Only the number of files matters.
Any way to get around this?
Edit1: No, not using any software, just the native windows explorer file manager. I do not know if it is related, but i followed this guide to move C:\Users to the D:\ partition.
Edit2: Fixed, If i navigate D:\Users\UserID\Downloads, moving files is instant. But If i try to move navigating from the left hand panel directly to Downloads, even though it is actually on the D: drive, its dead slow. Thanks again
