My understanding was that when a file is assigned to a content type, the metadata was linked to the file and not the library.
I try to move files between different document libraries. But when I do this I lose the metadata linked to these files. The following message shows up when i try:
The file or folder contains properties that will be lost at the new destination
I had to first add the Content Type to the new library in order not to lose the metadata.
Should it be this way or am I doing something wrong?
