Moving Files are slow when moving from Lister Find Results

If I move files from one location to another on the same hard drive it is very fast since the files do not have to be physically copied.

However, if I move the files from a find results (in a lister), it is very slow. It appears, that in this case, the files are physically copied and then deleted, even though the files are moved within the same hard drive.

(This does not happen with other file managers....)

Confirmed. I'm surprised nobody (including myself!) has noticed that before.

I've opened a bug report with GPSoftware for this issue.

Has this been fixed..? I have the same issue.


This problem was fixed in 2006 but seems to have sneaked back in since then. We'll fix it in the next update.
