Given a file, and we have to move it from one location to another location using C# program.

File.Move()

This is a method of "File class, which is used to move a file from one location (source) to another location (destination).

Syntax:

File.Move(source_file, dest_file);

Parameter(s):

  1. source_file - Location of source file.
  2. dest_file - Location of destination file, and here we can change filename.

We can set following detail of last write time:

  • Date
  • Month
  • Year
  • Hour
  • Minute
  • Second
  • AM/PM

Program

using System;
using System.IO;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main()
        {
           
            File.Move("source/ABC.TXT", "dest/XYZ.TXT");
            Console.WriteLine("File moved successfully");

        }
    }
}

Output

File moved successfully

Note: In above program, we need to remember, when we use "File" class, System.IO namespace must be included in the program.
