Use the MoveTo memeber function
See the example, Just specify the path of the parent directory of the place where you want it to moveto.

using System;
using System.IO;

public class MoveToTest
{
    public static void Main()
    {

        // Make a reference to a directory.
        DirectoryInfo di = new DirectoryInfo("TempDir");

        // Create the directory only if it does not already exist.
        if (di.Exists == false)
            di.Create();

        // Create a subdirectory in the directory just created.
        DirectoryInfo dis = di.CreateSubdirectory("SubDir");

        // Move the main directory. Note that the contents move with the directory.
        if (Directory.Exists("NewTempDir") == false)
            di.MoveTo("NewTempDir");

    }
}
