Please provide the following information

qBittorrent version and Operating System

4.1.3 Windows 10

What is the problem

Had to move a folder to another location. Said folder had several files, some completed, some still downloading (same torrent). After moving the file, used the 'Define Location' context menu on the torrent, and it stated it started 'moving'. After it completed, all previously downloaded files were erased.

Probably a use case that wasn't thought of, still, it can and will lead to a big loss of data.

What is the expected behavior

Described above. Should check existing folder before 'moving'

Steps to reproduce

Described above.
