Moving folders in Finder without copying
Authored by: BLAZE_MkIV on Aug 02, '10 12:14:00PM

I did the recursive change permissions in the finder get info window first. Only worked for the files not folders. The mv man page doesn't specify if it would copy or not and I didn't want it to fail after filling up my drive.

From the manpage to 'mv' ...

"NAME
mv -- move files"

:)

"mv" moves files. "cp" copies files.

Anyway, most users probably wouldn't want to use the Terminal, but that's what I would have done.
