DescriptionMoves a file or folder without user interface.
SourcePath and DestPath must be valid and exist. So pass destination folder for the destination.
The Linux implementation does only move files within the same file system.
On Mac you may get error -43 for file not found if you refer to a file in a folder, where you don't have file permissions to look inside the folder.
See also Files.RenameFile to rename a file.
This function requires a native path. Use Path.FileMakerPathToNativePath to convert a FileMaker path to a native path if required. If you like to have the user choose the path, you can use FileDialog functions.
For Server be aware that server has limited permissions and may not be able to access all files on a computer.
