In Lightroom 5 when moving files from one hard drive to another an error message appears saying that some files (xmp) were not moved. The weird thing is that xmp files are correctly moved despite the error message.

Were there copies of the XMP files left behind in the original location? The error may have appeared because Lightroom could not delete the originals in the initial folder location.

Nothing is left behind, the original folder is empty so I guess it's a bug as Jim says...

No it's not that Brett, it's a known bug with LR5 which has been reported. I'm hoping for a fix in the imminent Lightroom update.
