RFE: warn when unlinking at chown and Move - Insight

Reported by: pwalczysko Owned by: jburel

Present behaviour of Move and chown of a container (e.g. dataset) is that if it contains Projections, these get unlinked as you move the Dataset into another group with NO Warning. Additionally, the images now end up in Orphaned ==> virtually lost for the user, although the Move reports successful move of the Dataset.
The same happens when chown command is executed on such Dataset. (images get lost into Orphaned folder, Dataset get chowned)

Suggestion : Either warn user in advance that the images will not be going and let him stop the action or at least pop up a message that something was unlinked and left in Orphaned folder -> apparently enough methods are available to facilitate this.
