Problem moving folders

Posted: 08-30-2008, 04:30 PM
Has anyone, maybe a MVP, heard if or when Microsoft is going to fix the
problem with moving folders in the Windows Explorer?
For example I have folders A, B, and C. Each had multiple subfolders.
Assuming that a copy of A also exists in C and some files in A have been
updated. If I attempt to move A to C I get some dialogs asking if I want to
replace/skip/etc. I select to replace the files and folders and it appears to
do so. However folder a Is still there with some of the subfolders move and
others left. Moving A to C a second time correctly moves the folders.

I think they're going to do it on Monday.

Your guess wasn't very good. It's still not fixed!

You don't appreciate good sarcasm.

My REAL reply would have been: HTF would anyone know THAT, you
moron!??
