FileInfoMoveTo Method (String)

Moves a specified file to a new location, providing the option to specify a new file name.

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


Type: SystemString
The path to move the file to, which can specify a different file name.

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

This method works across disk volumes.

For example, the file c:\MyFile.txt can be moved to d:\public and renamed NewFile.txt.

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

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