I have two document libraries with same associated content type in two different sub sites in a site collection. I have uploaded a document by setting the column values. Now, if I copy a file from on library using open with explorer and paste in another library using the explorer then document is copied but the column/properties values are not copied.
If I create a document using the content type "New Document" instead of using the "Upload" button then the same process copied the document along with its properties/column values.
Is this the expected behavior that metadata/column values copied from one library to another only if we create the document using content type but not if we directly use upload option?
