This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Moving files, resulted in deleting the files

1. change to Library mode -> Grid view (press 'g')
2. select > 10 images
3. drag and drop images into any folder - notice the image that is highlighted!
4. error dialog "Error While Moving Files" is displayed that the highlighted image was unable to be moved - see screenshot #2
5. manually drag and drop last file into folder :(

This is not 100% reproducible but on my current system (i7, SSD, 12gb RAM) when sorting panoramas into sub-directories, I get this error about 75% of the time. Also on my old system (AMD Phenom x4 w/ 6gb RAM) I would get this error even more frequently.

Win7 x64. Lightroom v3.4.1 (however this bug has been around since at least v2).

This should be fixed in Lightroom CC/Lightroom 6.
