MOVE – Windows CMD Command

Move a file from one folder to another

Both Source and Target can be either a folder or a single file.

The source can include wildcards (but not the destination).

Under Windows 2000 and above, the default action is to prompt on overwrite unless the command is being executed from within a batch script.
To force the overwriting of destination files use the COPYCMD environment variable:


If the File(s) were successfully moved/renamed %ERRORLEVEL% = 0
If the File was not found, could not be moved/renamed or bad parameters %ERRORLEVEL% = 1
