    Hi everyone. I'm new to Phandroid and recently purchased the Droid. I downloaded Astro File Manager and have not been able to copy or move files from one directory to another. I go through the edit>move then change directories and edit>paste procedure and the files are not moved. Any thoughts? Thanks and great to be on board.

    Both Copy/Paste and Move/Paste work for me on the HTC Hero..

    Welcome! :D

    Hmm, how are you selecting the source file?
    1) Long-press the file, then select Edit->Move? This should work.
    2) Press Edit on the toolbar, then Move? If you have not selected a file (in multi-selection mode), the menu will still "blink" as you tap it, but because it's actually greyed out (which is a little hard to see), nothing will happen when you later select Paste (which should then also be greyed out).

    Are you moving within the /sdcard directory?
    1) The "/sdcard" directory represents the built-in flash memory; the "/sdcard/sd" directory represents the removable flash memory.
    2) Everything outside of "/sdcard" (say, "/userdata") is read-only unless you have rooted your phone.

    Thanks Klaymen. I was trying to copy a folder from "/sdcard" and move it to "/". That must be the issue, because it looks like I can move files within "/sdcard" or to a subdirectory below that.
