Description dicusar 2010-05-30 21:46:02 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.3.4) 
OS:                MS Windows

I tried to drag and drop a file from one of my directories to digikam space for
files. I am asked if I want to move the file, to copy the file, or cancel. If I
press Copy Here, the original file is deleted, this should not be normal

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
drag and drop file on digikam space where files are listed, press Copy Here in

Actual Results:  
original file is deleted

Expected Results:  
original files should stay

Same there : Which digiKam version you use ?

I think it's solved in 1.2.0

I assume these three bugs 240139, 240140 and 240142 are MS Windows specific
Comment 3 caulier.gilles 2010-11-24 09:09:26 UTC
