I have downloaded updates into a local directory with an appended _ to allow the download to occure without errors.

Now I would like to use something like this: to overwrite the original file...

FileInfo fi = new FileInfo(@"C:\MyProgramRoot\Sub1\");
               
System.IO.File.Move(fi +"new text document.txt_", fi+ "new text document.txt");

I believe you will be limited to:

  System.IO.File.Copy(fi + "new text document.txt_", fi + "new text document.txt", true);
  System.IO.File.Delete(fi + "new text document.txt_");
