move command does not allow wildcards in the destination, which must be an existing directory if you're moving more than one file. (The syntax for
move is different than for
rename, which may be confusing you. ) Here's an example:
> dir /w
Volume in drive C is Windows7
Volume Serial Number is E441-3A51
Directory of C:\Users\Nicole\Desktop\MoveExample
[.] [..] file1 file2 [folder]
2 File(s) 27 bytes
3 Dir(s) 507,369,046,016 bytes free
> move file* fold*
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
> move file* newfolder
Cannot move multiple files to a single file.
> move file* folder
2 file(s) moved.
