It still does the samething (just copies and not moves) when dragging to another drive. I am curious though and perhaps someone with two partitions can try it..but is it a limitation of a disk to disk drag or simply another drive in general I wonder?

Meaning if you had one physical hard drive say 100GB split into two partions with drive letters C: and D: I wonder if it would still only "copy" to the D: drive rather than move...or if it would move it because it is on the same disk..now Im confusing myself..lol.

No it still just copies the file. I have tried it with my Internal and External drives.
