    Default File Moving Question

    This may be more of a computer question than a phone question, but hopefully someone can answer. I don't keep files on my computer's hard drive. When I get enough pics, taken or downloaded, I hook up my phone via a usb cable to my computer then insert my zip drive, thumb drive if you will. Next, I simply use My Computer to locate the files I want off my phone and MOVE them to the thumb drive, bypassing the computer hard drive all together. Question: By moving the files this way, does any of the files (or part of the files) I move stay on the hard drive?

    If you're just moving the pics from your phone to your thumb drive then nothing should be on the computer itself.

    I can see if others can chime in or correct me if I'm wrong.

    I would think that no actual image info should be wrote to the hard drive itself. At most, I could see something left in Ram if you did a copy/paste (which would be a safer way to transfer in case something screwed up writing to the thumb drive). That still wouldn't write to the hard drive unless you manually pasted the file to it I think.
