    OK, I have 2 hard drives (well, one partitioned twice). When I move the files from one to the other they copy themselves rather than just being moved. Is there a way round this, other than using cut and paste?

    By default dragging files within a partition or drive will move, from one to another will copy.

    Pressing Shift while dragging forces a move,
    pressing Control while dragging forces a copy,
    pressing Ctr+Shift while dragging creates shortcuts.

    Or drag with the right mouse button and make your choice in the menu that comes up.

    Let me know if you want a "copy to /move to" registry adjustment file.
    Just double click to install.
    Much easier and quicker than cut & paste.

    DFX no problem.
    I was however offering to email you an exe file that adjusts registry without entering regedit at all !
    Have been using it for a year or so and saved a lot of time.
