 +How a rename is processed is dependent on the storage. For some storage providers a rename is as simple as an API request, for others it involves:
 +
 +- Copying the file as the renamed filename
 +- Removing the original file
 +
 +Note that for Object Storage a rename is potentially a very expensive operation, particularly if the rename is at the folder level. This is because in Object Storage folders are actually objects and filenames actually encompass the prefix of the folder in their name so naming a folder with many files or sub folder nesting within it require every single file and folder in the hierarchy to be renamed, which itself involves a copy, a delete, and a move to Trash operation.
