When dragging from from OneDrive to non-OneDrive folder, make default COPY rather than MOVE
Currently, if you open a OneDrive folder in Explorer, and you drag a file to a different folder (or the Desktop), the default is MOVE. What this means is that this file will then be deleted from OneDrive and all other clients. If the user then deletes this file, it is gone forever.
It seems the safer option is to default to COPY, which would leave it on OneDrive.

Agree! and this causes me extra work when I drag a file from a folder on C: to OneDrive (also on C:) and then have to manually copy it back again.
If One drive was simply a folder, then "move" would be expected, but OneDrive is a cloud drive.
The default should be always copy, override-able with right-click drag to move.
Or an option to treat it as a local folder or a separate drive sounds like a simple fix!

Same for dragging from a non-OneDrive to OneDrive. The name "OneDrive" suggests that it is a different drive. In Windows, drag-and-drop from one drive to another does a copy, not a move. For OneDrive to behave differently (move) is inconsistent.
