3 simple questions about renaming files/folders

I am unsure how Cyberduck implements renaming. 3 questions:

1) rename file: is the object simply renamed, or is it copied to the new name and the original deleted?

2) rename folder: same question ... plus, if copy/delete, does this rewrite all the files in the folder into the new folder?

3) rename Cryptomator vault: same question, though #10131 (almost 2 years old) seems to indicate that all contained files are decrypted and moved into an unencrypted folder. Is this accurate/reproduced?

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

Files and folders are renamed if the protocol supports such operations such as SFTP or WebDAV. When a rename operation is not supported we copy and and then delete the origin file. This is the case for S3. In these cases we have to recursively copy containing files when renaming a folder.

Issue #10131 is still open.
