Copied Test Suite's Test Case Deletion

Hi there!

I have copied a test suite with ALL of it’s test cases. TS1 -> TS2. says that the test cases I want to delete will be deleted everywhere
In the new Test Suite I would like to delete several test cases. The alert I am presented with says something along the lines of the test cases will be deleted everywhere.

Why would it delete copied test cases everywhere?

Thanks for any and all help!

A Test case in a Suite will start with C. Any Test Case that starts with a T is in a Test Run and is a copy of the Test Case in the Suite that starts with the C.

When you delete a C test case - there is only one copy. When there is a Test Case in a run/Plan that starts with a T can be in multiple Test Runs/Plans.
