Could be that it is copying it rather than moving it, or the phone takes a few mins to update it's read storage parameters
// Nexus 5 (D821) // Liquid // UBER //
// Note 3 (SM-N9005) // AOSP ROM of variety // Lean or temasek's Kernel // - Dumped. No more Samsung

it doesnt copy it because on the storage on the sd card remains the same.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.

I know, usually letting the phone re-index does the trick.

I take it reformatting the card also does nothing?
