Yes, I'm sure we're dealing with differences in the GUI.

More experimentation this weekend:

If I open up a Windows Explorer window and drag the files from the old folder to the new one, everything is good. If I inspect the permissions for these dragged files in Synology's DSM, they look like the ones I had to set manually after moving the files in Synology's File Station. Didn't expect that, but it's nice.

When I move the files in Windows, it appears that the old files are actually deleted and a new copy written. I say this because of the amount of time it takes to complete the operations. In File Station, if I right-click on a folder and choose Copy/Move . . . , the operation is faster; it just says "calculating file size" and then it's done. So I assume it's not actually moving the file, just changing the master file table that tells the DSM what files are where.

Which way I do it doesn't really matter, I suppose, now that I understand how it works and don't worry about my files disappearing.
