You cannot move or rename an object in an HCP namespace. If a client tries either of these operations, the operation fails.

If this occurs, many clients automatically try to copy and delete the object instead. (This is how the HCP WebDAV MOVE method works.) If deletion is not allowed (for example, because the object is under retention), the original object remains in place, regardless of whether the copy is created.

When a copy is created and the original object is deleted, the move or rename operation appears to have been successful.
