I want to move all files that are returned from:

c:\blah\:> dir *foobar*

into a folder blah\foobar

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

You could also do move *foobar* <Destination_Dir>

+1 - +10 if I could. – Evan Anderson Dec 9 '09 at 2:22

From blah\, try:

move foobar\* blah\foobar

If the second blah doesn't exist, you'll need to create it:

mkdir blah

If you were in \foobar, you'd want to go:

move * ..\blah\foobar

as .. represents the folder above the current folder (so c:\blah\..\blah\.\foobar boils down to c:\blah\foobar)
