Moving files via current folder window.

I have noticed that if I cut and paste a file or folder via the GUI, Matlab seems to physically move the location of file or folder on the hard drive (even if the move is within a partition). So I never use the Matlab current folder window to move files. But sometimes I forget and I cut and paste a large data file and then endure a long irritating wait (I thought I'll ask this question while I wait :-)) for the operation to complete. Is this behaviour intentional and if so why?
Typical OS behaviour is to change the internal pointers or links and not move the actual file. I would expect this to be the default Matlab behaviour also.
Thank You.

Ah, I see. I've played a liitle with my Matlab R2016b/Win7/64. At first I had the same behaviour, then, after an intented duplication with the Ctrl-key, the expected moving is performed, not a duplication anymore. Confusing.

If I copy&paste a file in the windows explorer, it is duplicated and this is what I expect in folder views also, e.g. in the file seclection dialogs. Links are created only, if I drag files to the task bar or start menu.
Therefore I assume, the creation of the copy is the wanted and expected behavior for a copy&paste.

I'm not talking about copy. I said cut and paste which most OS's will treat as a move.
