Moves a DirectoryInfo instance and its contents to a new path.

Namespace:  Alphaleonis.Win32.Filesystem
Assembly:  AlphaFS (in AlphaFS.dll) Version: 2.0
public void MoveTo(
	string destinationPath


Type: SystemString

The name and path to which to move this directory.

The destination cannot be another disk volume or a directory with the identical name.

It can be an existing directory to which you want to add this directory as a subdirectory.


Use this method to prevent overwriting of an existing directory by default.

This method does not work across disk volumes.

Whenever possible, avoid using short file names (such as XXXXXX~1.XXX) with this method.

If two directories have equivalent short file names then this method may fail and raise an exception and/or result in undesirable behavior.
