    As long as thr partitions are mounted they will both show in the file manager so you move any files the same way as you do from folder to folder, ie in terminal with
    Code:
    mv /source/path/to/files  /destination/path/to/files
    or using drag & drop with your mouse in file manager.

    It will take more time than moving a file within a partition, otherwise, it's the same.

    That function got damaged during an upgrade of the forum. See here for a work-around: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2121377
