I will have a folder called batch, in it there are other folders request1, request2, request3....
When a folder has been processed, I want to move it from batch to processed.
How can I do this?
Also, these folders will be very large.  Will there be an issue moving them if they are on the same level as batch?

so
batch .....processed on the same level

in batch there will be request1, 2, 3 ...

Moving a file or folder is the same as renaming it.

//Folder
System.IO.Directory.Move(@"c:\batch\request1", @"C:\processed\request1");

//File
System.IO.File.Move(@"c:\request.xml", @"c:\processing.xml");
