I'm having an issue where files are not moving (hard links), they're copying instead. I have a secondary drive set up at /mnt/media. This was setup in PlexGuide (my server.hd.path viable is /mnt/media) and files download to /mnt/media/downloads and my move folder is at /mnt/media/move. I can mv a file manually from downloads to move and it'll happen instantly. However, if I mv it to /mnt/unionfs/Plex/Movies/etc then it'll copy instead of moving...and then it ends up in the /mnt/media/move folder anyway. If I manually put something in the /mnt/media/move folder it'll appear in the /mnt/unionfs/ at the appropriate pathway (whatever directory I placed it in).

Does anyone know what I should do? I feel like I've got something set strangely. Please help!

BL: moving from /mnt/downloads/nzbget to /mnt/move is instant, and moving from /mnt/unionfs/nzbget to /mnt/unionfs/movies is also instant, but you can't move from outside the bind to inside, you have to copy (even if the same location exists inside and outside).
