Moves files and renames files and directories.

To move one or more files:
MOVE [/Y | /-Y] [drive:][path]filename1[
...] destination

To rename a directory:
MOVE [/Y | /-Y] [drive:][path]dirname1 dirname2

[drive:][path]filename1 Specifies the location and name of the file
or files you want to move.
destination             Specifies the new location of the file. Destination
can consist of a drive letter and colon
a
directory name
or a combination. If you are moving
only one file
you can also include a filename if
you want to rename the file when you move it.
[drive:][path]dirname1  Specifies the directory you want to rename.
dirname2                Specifies the new name of the directory.

/Y                      Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to
overwrite an existing destination file.
/-Y                     Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite
an existing destination file.

The switch /Y may be present in the COPYCMD environment variable.
This may be overridden with /-Y on the command line.  Default is
to prompt on overwrites unless MOVE command is being executed from
within a batch script.
