I use SyncBackPro to schedule files to be copied to my cloud drive nightly. One thing I can't get to work correctly is if I want to setup a schedule to move files from one folder on my clouddrive to another folder in the same clouddrive, SyncBackPro wants to re-upload the files instead of just move them "in-place" like moving in windows explorer works. What's the function called when you move files from one location to another on the same cloud drive and not trigger a re-upload? I've searched for the answer to this problem but i'm not getting anywhere since i'm not sure what terminology to use.

move or copy?
If it's move, then "smart move" is the term you're looking for.
And this should happen if it's on the same drive (eg from D:\path to D:\newpath).
However, this may still trigger an upload, as the NTFS "MFT" (File allocation table) is updated and that change must be updated.
