    Yes. that's how OSX works. There's no cut command regarding files in the Finder.

    move them by dragging (to move to a different disk hold command).

    I think you actually hold 'Option'

    no, if you drag a file to another disk it will copy it by default as indicated by the green 'plus' sign. to move it hold command ;). hold command and option to make an alias.

    "opt" will copy - the default is to move when the source and dest are on same volume
    "cmd" will move - the default is to copy when the source and dest are on different volumes

    You could use mv, but I'm guessing that would just confuse ya.:)

    Just drag and drop I guess?

    Sorry, you are correct.

    You use the option key when dragging to somewhere on the same volume if you want to copy rather than cut. I assumed it was the same key to do the reverse when dragging to a different volume, but it's actually command as you said.
