Drag and Drop: Move vs Copy: Default action is not intuative

When I drag and drop something from one disk to another in windows it copies. When I'm using WinSCP I think of the other computer as another disk so when I drag and drop I expect it to copy, not move.

WinSCP will move files, which sucks when it's a 30 mb file that too hours to upload in the first place.

Since 5.14, it is always possible to use drag&drop to move remote files to external applications, while copy is always the default operation.
