Moving files to SUBST'ed drives

Post by azaz44 » 06 Jan 2012, 16:35

I reorganized my folders today and I'm using a subst'ed drive H: as my home folder. Very convenient.

SUBST H: C:\Work
(actually I made it with VisualSubst)

But now, when moving files between C: and H: drives (which are both C: in fact), Altap Salamander actually performs copying and then deleting files, like if these were different drives.

This might be called a 'feature', because a quick test shows Windows Explorer (I'm running Vista) is doing the same thing. But obviously AS is way better, so maybe it could handle this properly?

And same can be applied to symlinked folders.

+1 as I'm extensively using subst (makes paths much shorter and many programs remember 1 directory per drive letter so with subst you've more remembered paths) and some symlinks
Using Salamander since v 1.52
