Topic "Can't move from server to client with Drag & Drop + Shift"

I can't move a file from the server to the client via drag & drop + 'Shift' - I can only copy them, but when I use the 'move' - Button (or F6) all works fine.
In the other way it although works fine.

WinXP SP1 + all available patches, WinSCP 3.21

Great work

Move with drag&drop is disabled by default. You may enable it from Preferences dialog. However it is not recommended, you risk that you loose your data. If you drag file within WinSCP, it should work fine. But if you drop it outside of WinSCP and target application fails to store dropped file, it can be lost.
