Books deleted from Calibre after Drag and Drop

When Drag and Drop books from Calibre to Windows Explorer, those books were copied to the target folder.

But when Drag and Drop books to Q-Dir 6.67 by www.softwareok.com, those books were moved to the target folder and deleted from Calibre. Is this normal? How can I prevent it? Thank You.

The only sure way is to stop dragging books out of calibre. Use the Save to disk function in calibre to export books to whichever folder you desire.

I just dragged a book from the book list into Windows File Explorer, xplorer², and Files&Folders Lite. For all three, the library book folder was unchanged - even if I dragged it to a folder on the same drive.

Must be a feature of Q-dir to delete source on Drop, maybe there's a setting to stop that.

Right, from their website

You can easy force to move or to copy the data while dragging in each Explorer View of Q-Dir, Is like drag and drop in MS Explorer!

Copy force with [CTRL] + Drag
Moving force with [SHIFT] + Drag
