In Windows explorer I do any of the following.
- Rename a folder
- Rename a file
- Move a file from one directory to another
All of these can be accomplished by a simple move operation.
Sometimes a “move” is used
Sometimes files are deleted on the server and re-uploaded.
I see no obvious pattern in how it chooses what method to use.
I though maybe it depended on file size, but even moving a large (500 MB file) into a sub-folder and later back resulted in a “move” down on the sever (OK) and later a totally unnecessary server “delete/re-upload” on returning to the original folder.
This is very inefficient and there is no obvious reason for it
Steps to reproduce
- Select a file in Windows Explorer
- Drag to a sub-folder, observe Sync log and wait until idle
- Select same file again and drag and drop back to original place, observe sync log
- Repeat or vary file or folder until delete/upload is used
