"The system cannot move the file to a different disk drive"

I’ve stumbled upon a bug seemingly related to the use of the os.replace function and the import: move option, as using the copy option instead fixes the bug.

Note that the same config was working correctly with a previous install which ran on Python 3.7.

Here is the full bug:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Users\hydro\anaconda3\lib\site-packages\beets\util\__init__.py", line 496, in move
    os.replace(path, dest)
OSError: [WinError 17] The system cannot move the file to a different disk drive: '\\\\?\\C:\\Users\\hydro\\AppData\\Local\\Temp\\tmp02lvwxx1.flac' -> '\\\\?\\M:\\Musique lossless\\Ancient Methods\\2021 - The Jericho Remixes\\01 Swordplay (Hypnoskull vocal remix).flac'

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Thanks—could you please file a bug on GitHub? The traceback seems to be cut off, so I don’t see exactly what went wrong, but this is probably a regression introduced in this PR:


Thank you for the instructions. Should I close or delete this topic?
