        Imports System.Runtime.CompilerServices
	Imports System.IO
	 
	Module Extensions
	    <Extension()>
	    Public Sub MoveAllItemsTo(ByVal fromPathInfo As DirectoryInfo, ByVal toPath As String)
	        ''Create the target directory if necessary
	        Dim toPathInfo = New DirectoryInfo(toPath)
	        If (Not toPathInfo.Exists) Then
	            toPathInfo.Create()
	        End If
	        ''move all files
	        For Each file As FileInfo In fromPathInfo.GetFiles()
	            file.MoveTo(Path.Combine(toPath, file.Name))
	        Next
	        ''move all folders
	        For Each dir As DirectoryInfo In fromPathInfo.GetDirectories()
	            dir.MoveTo(Path.Combine(toPath, dir.Name))
	        Next
	    End Sub
	End Module

Call it like this:
	Dim fromDir = New DirectoryInfo("C:\dev\folder2")
	fromDir.MoveAllItemsTo("C:\dev\folder1")

Open in new window
