I am using Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1. Looking at Windows Explorer, I have a folder with multiple documents (.doc, .xls, .pdf). I want to MOVE the documents into subfolders. (I know how to copy/move documents.)
1 -- I created 5 subfolders and tried to MOVE the documents into the various subfolders. Suddenly Windows Explorer will not MOVE the documents; it will only COPY them to a subfolder.
2 -- I moved ALL the documents onto a flash drive, deleted all of the folders/subfolders on the computer, emptied the recycle bin and started over. The same exact thing happens when I create new folders/subfolders and move the documents over from the flash drive into the subfolders on the computer. It will only COPY them -- not MOVE. A duplicate copy remains in the main folder. However, I never dragged/dropped the documents there -- I only put them into the subfolders.
3 -- I tried to CUT/PASTE the documents from the flash drive to folders/subfolders on the computer and the same thing happens. The documents go into the subfolders where I put them, but they are also automatically copied to the main folder.
Do you have any idea what is happening and what I can do to fix this?
