Whenever I drag files from my desktop to a secondary drive on my Windows 7 PC it copies by default. I know I can shift+drag it over but what I'd like to do is make the default move instead of copy.

Is there any way to do this?

Not sure there's a way to override the default behavior within windows. You can always right-click drag and upon releasing right click, select move. Takes an extra second and at least you don't have to hold SHIFT down..
