Let's say I have 2 shared folders on volume1, one called downloads and one called video. When I try to move (cut and paste) a file between those folders, it will do a network copy.
It does this both with AFP and SMB. It even does this on the system itself (when Sickrage tries to move a file from downloads to video while postprocessing).
When I move a file between folders on the same shared folder, the move is instant.
Is this by design? Should I just create one shared folder and create subfolders within that shared folder?
