Option to confirm moving files/directories in AppExplorer / ProjectExplorer

    Details

      Description

      I remember that in older 3.x Eclipse versions, when I dragged & dropped files/directories around in the Project Explorer (and the likes) view, a confirmation dialog popped-up allowing me to change the target directory or to cancel the move operation. I consider this option extremely useful, as I managed to bork a lot of projects by accidentally dragging items somewhere else and extra-work needed to debug and revert this (can be a pain if there's no version control in place).

      Please add this functionality and at least allow to be optionally activated through a configuration.

      Later edit: it just hit me, what I'm talking about is the dialog that appears for the "Move..." command from the right-click menu in the App/Project explorer, just make it to also pop-up for drag & drop please !
