MS File Move across Shares

ny_shelly asked
Last Modified: 2016-06-23
Can someone clarify how files are moved between shares?

I understand that when you MOVE a file to a folder in a different Share, the file is copied first.

When you MOVE a file across a folder in the same share, there is no copy.

Can you please point me to some documentation that explains this?
