Drag and drop between drives defaults to copying the files not moving them. I know holding along with the drag will move the files, but I'm looking for something more permanent like a defaults command, maybe?

I'm using Lion.


I assume there is no defaults switch for this situation, otherwise someone would have helped already. But using the keyboard, you could move the files like this: +C, then +alt+V to paste at the desired destination. It’s like cut & paste on Windows, only Mac style. Also, works across volumes!
