Alpha then makes the move and then asks you if you want to update all links (this is the whole point of this function, so a 'yes' should be appropriate, but it gives you a chance to abort the update if you have moved the wrong files).

Alpha now updates all HTML links, HREF, SRC, etc. as well as CSS links url("...") and all include links <!-- #INCLUDE ... --> to make sure that they point at the same files as before. This update is done in all files both in the home page folder and the include folder.

Updating links may take a little while if you have very many files but should in most cases be a lot faster than to make the changes manually.
