Copy Method (String, String)

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Copies an existing file to a new file. Overwriting a file of the same name is not allowed.

Namespace:  System.IO
Assembly:  System.IO (in System.IO.dll)

public static void Copy(
	string sourceFileName,
	string destFileName
)

Parameters

sourceFileName
Type: System..::..String
The file to copy.
destFileName
Type: System..::..String
The name of the destination file. This cannot be a directory or an existing file.

This method is equivalent to the Copy(String, String, Boolean) method overload with the overwrite parameter set to false.

The sourceFileName and destFileName parameters can specify relative or absolute path information. Relative path information is interpreted as relative to the current working directory. To obtain the current working directory, see the Directory..::..GetCurrentDirectory method.
