Move versus cutting and pasting files

In a Syncthing folder over 200 GB moved a large number of files to another folder using cut and paste. Syncthing took the action as delete and create new files in the other folder. If had dragged and dropped would Syncthing have acted differently? Windows file browser used but sure same logic applies to others.

I doubt it, as deletes are delayed by 10s, but 10s is not enough to reconstruct 200gb of files on the other side. The only way is to copy, wait for it to sync, and then delete.

Is it not 60s?

Still likely not enough to process all the changes. I would personally like to be able to increase the delay to 5 minutes or even more, depending on the connection speed.
