Please add a [SOLVED] at the end of your original subject header if your question has been answered and solved.
It copies unless you are in the same tree section (a subsection of the parent directory) --for example if you open two file manager windows from the menus, and you are perusing your directories/folders, then a drag&drop moves the file from one location to another in that directory tree
If you used a usb drive and did a drag and drop it only copies, not moves the file or directory.. --and is also a little sensitive about mouse clicks..
