Allow to search when choosing location to "Move" files/folders

When selecting FOLDERS or FILES to MOVE, the MOVE feature only allows you to navigate the folder structure, which can be time consuming when you need to move between locations, especially if the TARGET folder is deep in another subfolder.

The MOVE feature should therefore allow you to TYPE AHEAD and FILTER for the TARGET FOLDER NAME to make things massively faster and easier to use.

Is it just me, or would Move be much easier if the Suggested location was at least based on previous activity AND Pinned and Favourite locations.

Even better, when I select Move, make it a Search feature to find the location instead of navigating (lots of time spent doing this).

Thanks @Daphne  - this is a MASSIVE time saver for heavy and regular users.

It will allow people to manage their files in the cloud better, as opposed to downloading them to manage them, then sync, especially in larger volumes.
