Intra-Volume Copy vs. Move = No Joy

Post by Zardoz2293 » 24 Jan 2019 16:33

Performing an "intra-volume" copy and move on the same file to the same location with same credentials. I would expect the behavior to be the same. That is either both operations would succeed or both would fail.

Example:
Source = V:\SQL\Notes.pdf
Target = V:\SQL\Docs\

Copy Steps:
1. CTRL+C on selected LV "V:\SQL\Notes.pdf"
2. CTRL+V on selected TV "V:\SQL\Docs'
3. Success [expected]

Move Steps:
1. CTRL+X on selected LV "V:\SQL\Notes.pdf"
2. CTRL+V on selected TV "V:\SQL\Docs'
3. Moving Failed [unexpected] as "Access is denied."

Custom Copy: XYcopy.exe = v2.10.0138

And it does work flawlessly when you do the exact same move operation from within Windows Explorer?

WE = Sure does, works as expected.

Apparently, something in XY was changed from build v19.50.0231 to v19.50.0241 and now works as expected. Only change on my end was installing v19.50.0241 and performing same actions as indicated. Not sure how long the concern existed but for some period of extended time.

Thanks for fixing it!

Just to mention. Copy is not the SAME as moving.
Moving involves deleting the source file after copying. That's what failed. I encounter the same often when working with some volumes or dynamically mounted volumes. Or moving files away from program files (copying works) etc.
But what was the cause in your situation I don't know.
