With ref to my posting on Wednesday still having same problem but now I have just moved a folder from my hard drive to my external drive but can this be explained even though it is now on my external drive it is still on my PCs hard drive so I now have two copies is this possible.Obviously it is because I can see it and they both play to the end.

Just thought maybe I clicked on copy in error not sure but it would seem logical.

If you drag a folder using the left mouse button to the same drive it performs a move if you drag it to a different drive it performs a copy. If you want to choose what it does then drag with the RIGHT mouse button and choose the option you want. Note that the default action is in bold.

I just left click on the folder click on move and choose where I want to move them to and click move

click here Add the Send to toy to windows

right click select Send to folder browse to where you want to move it , you get the choice of move or copy.

Position the mouse pointer to the folder or file you want to move or copy then press and hold down the right mouse button then drag the folder/file to the destination folder and release the right mouse button. You will be presented with 4 options two of which are COPY and MOVE, left click on the one you want to use or try Fruitbats suggestion.
