There is a problem moving folders where the folder already exists at the
destination, and you have to do it twice.
Please consider the following steps.
1. Open Windows Explorer (e.g. the Start Menu)
2. Move a folder to another folder (e.g. PaintShop Pro to Graphics folder) -
Note that in this example there is an existing sub folder inside Graphics
called PaintShop Pro
3. Windows Vista displays message saying folder already exists and you have
to click OK to continue
4. Windows Vista then displays a message asking whether you want to replace
the files in the folder (etc) with the option to click a check box to do this
for the other conflicts - click on the replace option
5. Windows moves the files (i.e. using this example, the ones in the
PaintShop Pro folder) BUT does not move the PaintShop Pro folder
6. You now have to move the (now empty) folder to the same destination -
this time the folder moves
Note that User Account Control is switched off which is why I haven't
mentioned the UAC messages that would otherwise also have been displayed.
I consider this a bug. If you select to move a folder and the files
contained in it, you shouldn't have to do it twice.
