Got an idea for Dropbox? We want to hear it. Our team will review the top voted ideas, so share them here!
According to my experience the Dropbox folder is treated by users as a shared [network] folder.
So the expected default behaviour of the drag-and-drop between the Dropbox folder and local folders is the copy [instead of move] operation.
The move operation leads to the loss of the original files in shared folder when user means to copy it to a local folder from a shared [network] folder. That causes a bad user experience with Dropbox.
The Dropbox should have an option to set the default action of drag-and-drop between the Dropbox folder and local folders. The default should be copy.
BTW the Google Stream (Google Drive) drag-and-drop between the Google folder and local folders the default operation is the copy and that is the way as it should be.
