A user is receiving this strange error while inside a Document Library and attempting to move a file (drag n drop or 'Move to')

The property 'RetainEditorAndModifiedOnMove' does not exist on type 'SP.MoveCopyOptions'. Make sure to only use property names that are definide by the type

Nothing online about this, any indications or ideas?

  • Same Issue-- Same Day- (Possible issue on Backend) I copied the file locally and then back up to directory. FYI Deleting and Restoring the Original did not change it properties when recovered from Recycle Bin

I could not reproduce this issue on my SharePoint Online environment. "Drag&Drop" and "Move to" could work well and no error shows.

Please check if this issue occurs on all libraries on all sites. If yes, I suggest you create a new service request on Admin Center->Support.
