I have 1 TB of files in D:/Foo but I want to move it to D:/. It takes several hours to move this by simply dragging the contents of Foo to its parent directory. Since this is on the same drive, is there a way to change the directory of these files without dragging/dropping and waiting for them to move?


Open the command prompt (cmd.exe) and navigate to Foo then use the command move FileToBeMoved .. and it moved instantly.
