I had not thought of that, or tried it.

Now that I have, there seems to be an issue. It works great if you select
only files and drag it over (although, it will put them all in the same
directory you drag it too). If you drag a folder, it will drag that, plus
the contents. However, if you select everything (a mix of folders and files)
it hangs explorer. Then if I click on the CFM window, I get a "Server Busy"
dialog. (This action cannot be completed because the "directory i'm dragging
too" program is not responding. Choose "Switch To" and correct the problem.,
with a "Switch To", "Retry" and "Cancel" buttons (with Cancel being greyed
out)).

I have to end up killing explorer. Sometimes it appears all the files were
moved over, and sometimes not. I think that depends on if I click on the
switch to, or retry a few times, or depending on how long I leave it.
