MoveTo Method

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

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

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

public void MoveTo(
	string destDirName
)

Parameters

destDirName
Type: System..::..String
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.

This method throws an IOException if, for example, you try to move c:\mydir to c:\public, and c:\public already exists. You must specify "c:\\public\\mydir" as the destDirName parameter, or specify a new directory name such as "c:\\newdir".

This method permits moving a directory to a read-only directory. The read/write attribute of neither directory is affected.
