Description

Moves a file from a given path to another path.

Use Move to move a file from a given path to another path. Move raises an exception if DestFileName indicates a file that already exists.


The following table lists the parameters expected by this method:

Name Meaning

SourceFileName

The path of the source file that will be moved.

DestFileName

The destination path to which the file will be moved.

Note: In general, Move has the same behavior on Windows and POSIX. But, for example, trying to move a "/user/file1" to "/usr/somedir/file1" may actually copy it. In POSIX "/usr/somedir", there may be a mount point for another partition, thus a copy is made.
Note: Move raises an exception if the given paths are invalid, do not exist, or cannot be accessed.
