Move requires elevation -> ASK user and MOVE top dir itse

Post by *MVV » 2016-04-25, 14:10 UTC

I've moved old Users folder backup to another subfolder in a folder requiring admin permissions. TC have asked for elevation and then started to move thousands of individual files and folders instead of just moving top folder entry.

Please add a feature to move top folder entry after elevation request or at least warn user that very-very-very slow moving will be performed!

This happens when moving the top folder fails for some unknown reason. Then TC creates a new folder and moves the contents.

It would be very very useful to try moving as admin first and only then create it and move its contents.
