well, please put another tick in the “configurable option” or, “change it back” column.
as to being “safer”, I can’t see how, I want to use the file manager to move files around, frequently gigabyte sized files, over a wifi connection, copying files is tremendously slow, moving them to where I want them is quick and easy.

well, I’ve successfully downgraded to 0.7.2, the change to drag being a copy instead of a move was bad enough for me, but then shift not working most of the time when trying to move files was enough to drive me back to nautilus on one system (ubuntu 1104×64) but on the other system I use it on (ubuntu 1104×86) it broke completely:
spacefm: symbol lookup error: spacefm: undefined symbol: g_mutex_new
the behavior with trying to move files that I was seeing is that it would copy instead of move, two or three times, and then it would usually move.
hit shift, click, drag, file doesn’t disappear from source dir. curse, repeat, it would indicate the file is now in dest dir, tell it to overwrite, still wouldn’t disappear, try again once or twice, and it’d finally move the file.
my ideal would be to be able to right, or middle click/drag and have it ask me if it wanted to move or copy…. but shift wasn’t working for me on ubuntu 11.10 x64.
