Very clever renaming before you move them. I often miss doing that.

I think what is happening is this:
When you save as an EPS file, it creates a copy of the working file, however when you save it as an AI file, it keeps the file open (in Illustrator). If you close Illustrator, you should be able to move the file to your hearts content. Another solution would be to put it where you want it in the first place!
