Does mv on a FAT filesystem actually rename or does it copy and delete?


I want to rename some picture files on a mounted digital camera
filesystem.  It is a VFAT filesystem.

If I rename one of the files using 'mv <xxxx.yyy>' will the file
*actually* be renamed by changing the directory entry only or will
mv copy the file to one with the new name and then delete the old one?
