Move/moveto ignore-existing delete src, even if src!=dst

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

When move --ignore-existing an existing file, the src file is deleted.

That is, ignore-existing excludes the existing files from uploading queue but keep them in the deletion queue.
Is this the expected behavior? Would it be bette to exclude them from both queues ?

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)


The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

# files: a/a b/a
rclone move --ignore-existing a b
# files: b/a

I don't think --ignore-existing normally gets used with move...

The behaviour does seem strange indeed!

I think at minimum --ignore-existing should give an error with move... It might be possible to make it a bit more sensible.

Can you please make a new issue on github about this please?
