Cannot MOVE directory to another drive from XP command line
Posted on 2004-04-05
I cannot use the 'move' command to move a directory from one drive to another from the Windows XP command prompt.
eg: move c:\any_folder D:
results in the error message: "Access is denied." If copying to the same drive letter, it works fine. Is there a solution or workaround (eg: using xcopy and rmdir?). I want to copy all files and subdirs. I prefer using a simple command like 'move' because of it is safer than copying and deleting files.
