    I need help with the Move Command.


    I am trying to move all the png files from the c: drive to the f: drive using the Move Command.
    I just cannot get the command correct.
    Here are Snips of my most basic attempt.
    Your help is appreciated.

    f:\good\

    with backslash

    and also /y stops prompting for confirmation that you want to overwrite an existing destination file.

    Try copy or xcopy. If either works, then you can follow with a del c:\*.jpg

    Would be useful if you show the list of files that you are trying to move.

    Also, you are trying to "move all the png" . Is that a typo?

    Yes, I am trying to move all the png files.
    I have already copied them to f:\.
    I did not know of a del command.
    I was using the move command as I believe it deletes them as it does the move.
    I'll try it.

    It appears like it doesn't like that command.
    Perhaps I need to have an elevated command!
    I'll give that a try.

    No go!

    If your files are JPG, use *.jpg, if they are PNG use *.png

    Just make sure you have copied all the files first.

    Your right!

    Good catch.

    Being 78 isn't great, I mess things up.

    Thank you.

    I re-did it but it failed again.
