If you drag and drop a file from one location to another on the same hard drive that results in a "move" not a "copy." To perform a copy select the file, press COMMAND-C (copy), go to the desired destination location and click in the destination folder then press COMMAND-V (paste).
Dragging and dropping across drives, however, results in a "copy" and not a "move."

Works OK here with ML and a magic mouse.
Make sure you are keeping the option key pressed until after you release the pressure on the trackpad. If I release the option key before releasing the mouse it will move the file not copy. The green plus needs to be visible until after the operation is done.

Thanks, Frank. I was releasing the option key prematurely. Guess I'm still trying to get the hang of using the trackpad in conjunction with the keyboard. For some reason, I don't have this problem with my MacBook trackpad and keyboard. . . .
