When you delete a folder within a library, the original folder is not
touched. When you delete an item within a folder within a library, that
item is deleted from its original location. AFAIK, That includes subfolders.
Fun, ain't it?
It's the worst possible set of inconsistent behaviours. Well, maybe
not the worst *possible* but it's pretty nuts.
No, definitely *not* the worst possible. I just thought of several
ways this system could be "improved" to cause complete chaos. I am
sure you guys could think of a few more.
I am right, they are messy and irrelevant. There are *loads* of file
handling programs that act as "Explorer" add-ons or replacements that
are much better, and far more consistent than Microsoft's Libraries.
Luckily, even in W8, "Library" use is optional. I opt not to.
