Golden Dialogs

As I've mentioned before, UI design is hard.

Take a look at this dialog, for instance.

The text says "Do you want to move or copy files from this zone?" and gives you the buttons "Yes" or "No" to click on.

Of course, the intention was to ask if the user wanted to proceed with the operation of transferring the files from the SharePoint zone to the desktop (whether that operation included moving or copying files), but it comes across as a question of whether the user wanted to 1) copy, or 2) move the files. Which is why the buttons are totally confusing for most users, unless the intent behind it can be decoded.
