Let us not forget what happens when one decides to move rather thancopy the files. I don’t have access to any Windows 8 or 10 machines, but I imagine if you move the file to a memory card, remove said card, and undo the move operation, the file will get deleted. I would need to borrow another machine to confirm this.

You know, I forgot Windows Explorer has an undo button. Everytime I did something in Windows that I didn’t mean to do, I just undid it manually. Perhaps that’s a good idea for everyone else: to forgo the undo button and fix their mistakes without it. Or, they can just keep backups of important files, in case the unexpected happens.
