Use the trash to move files to another location
Authored by: Crawfish Jones on Mar 19, '03 12:01:03PM

Or even easier, select the files, Cut them with Cmd-X, navigate to the target folder or volume, and Paste them with Cmd-V.

The problem with relying too much on the original shortcut is that OS X wants to delete files on network volumes immediately, os it only works on local volumes.

As far as I'm aware, you can't *cut* files using cmd-X, you can only copy them. At least, Cut has never been available on the OS X computers I've used.
