    Upgrade and Question (Ultimate)

    I've probably been told the answer, and I'm just suffering from memory lapse, but bear with me:

    I upgraded to WIndows Ultimate. Un the process, it copies all the "old files" to another directory, and then installs.

    After the install I tried (again) something that had not seemd right before, and it stilla doesn't seem "right":

    I created a folder (TOP) on my desktop. Then I created another folder (2nd) on my desktop. Then, inside 2ND, I created a text file (text.txt).

    Then I right-clicked and dragged 2nd and dropped it in TOP. It copied itself and contents into TOP.

    Then I repeated the same procedure. I got a messahe box saying that there is already a folder by that name, asking if I wanted to merge data of the two folders, and I said "yes", then it asked me if I wanted to move and replace or skip text.txt, and I said "yes" and same for all future files.

    When it was done, the folder 2ND was copied into TOP, as was the file text.txt.

    But text.txt was in fact MOVED into the new location, as was the intent, but the folder 2ND that was still on the desktop was NOT moved into TOP. I suppose it ws copied.

    Shouldn't it have been moved?

    What could be wriong here, 'cause I've installed nothing as yet into the upgrade.

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    On your first step, when you dropped the folder did you choose COPY? On your second step what did you choose when you dropped the folder?
