For some reason drag and drop in the Finder isn't working.  If I click on a file or folder it highlights, but when I hold the click and attempt to move it, it stays put.  The cursor moves but it doesn't take the file or folder with it.  So I can't reposition folders and I can't move them to other folders or the Desktop.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.1)

    I restarted and the problem resolved itself.  That's going to be a work around for others experiencing the issue but I'm not fully satisfied with that being the case.  This only confirms there was some kind of bug in play and that the OS is vulnerable to these kind of issues.  I'm hopefull Apple will look into this as one of Mac OS X's strongpoints is supposed to be its reliability.

    I also had the same problem, click and drag just stopped working for me and I have the latest OSX Lion update.


    For me I just logged out and back in and it started working again. Like yourself, I am not impressed with this bug either.
