    I Moved Folders in LR5 by dragging to a new location. Why did LR5 keep the folders and files on the internal Mac source drive?

      my iMac 1tb disk is full.  I bought a LaCie 3tb external and moved folders from 2012 to 2014 to the new drive.  I did this meticulously by renaming into year-mo-date__topic in LR Folders.   Then, I used LR5 to drag the folders across from the Mac HD to the LaCie external.   Everything successfully moved and is found and usable in LR5 from the LaCie 3tb drive.  The Mac HD is no longer showing in LR.  But, in Explorer, I still have 2012, 2013 and 2014 folders, and it is still consuming most of my internal drive.  

       

      Why didn't LR5 move all folders instead of what appears to be copying ?
