Move one or more files or folders from source to destination directory on a remote server in a data efficient manner without downloading data to local machine.

Source Path and name of the file or directory that will be moved. Input supports file masks · Learn file masks and wildcards & advanced SFTP wildcards

To relocate multiple files and multiple file types, even if located in different remote directories, use | vertical bar character to separate files. Combine lists, variables, or wildcards. For example:
  • /usr/summary4219.pdf | /home/user/*.png
  • /var/logs/062024.* | /out/i85[abc]*.txt
  • List of files | /data/2024/06-19/inv*.*
Destination Path (and, optionally, name) of file or directory where file or directory will be moved to.

Note that destination ending with / (slash character) designates folder, without / (slash) designates new name for a file or directory (must not be used when moving multiple files or directories).

If file or folder with the same name already exists at the destination, it will not be overwritten.
Use connectionSelect an existing connection to use for file moving. If there are no defined connections, the new connection window will be opened to establish a connection to FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, or DigitalOcean Spaces server.
