So I'm a switcher. I'm a pretty big power user and spend a lot of time on my pc. Most of my work is with photography.

Anyway, my issue, is that with windows, you could r/click drag/drop something and it'll ask you to move/copy. I essentially want my drag/drops to always move. If i want them to copy, i cmd+c to do it. So it is fine when I'm doing it all on the same hdd, but I tend to work off my desktop then move stuff afterwards. Which means drag/drop then delete orig.

Is there a way to A) make it ask or B) be allowed to drag/drop to other hdd's and not copy, just move ??


(just realized I stuck this in the wrong section, if a mod could kindly move it )

Click and drag the item to be moved, then hold down command and you will see the little green plus disappear, this means that when you drop the item will be moved, not copied.
