I like to use cut and paste by using my mouse. What happens when you try that?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

You can do that for data folders. If you move system or program folders they won't work anymore.

Cut and paste is always risky. Possible to lose all data. Better to copy and then after verifying file integrity deleting the original.

If these folders contain personal files you should be keeping at least two copies of them.

Is there a way to make "move" the default action when transferring files to an external disk?

And the way I move files around now is right-click hold, drag to location, release, select "move". Few extra mouse clicks, but not too bad i should think.
