How to move document sets and other documents from one library to another library

I have Source library A where all document sets and other documents (like word, excel) etc are there. I want to move all of them to Source library B with versioning and workflow status columns. I have document set content type in source A and document set in source library B.

I want to use powershell as the option to iterate through library and move them to source B. I need examples on this.

I suggest you invest in Metalogix ControlPoint as it can assist in reorganizing SharePoint environment.

My company won't invest in third party tool. My only choice is powershell or secondary choice c# but my first preference is powershell
Maybe this can help. I'm not sure if it includes other documents or the workflow:
Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I tried from this link and it is throwing me error, don't know why and new to powershell. Also I want to get all docsets not just one along with other files. Kind of looping but don't know how

I know you said you wanted to user PowerShell, but ShareGate offers a fully functional 15 day trial that would do the job for you.

Hope that helps

I will give a try but we are in test phase now and have to perform the same in production at later time
