import java.io.File;
import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.FileOutputStream;
import java.io.IOException;

/** JavaMadeSoEasy.com */
public class MoveFile {
   public static void main(String... args) {
          String sourcePath ="c:/myFile.txt";
          String destinationPath= "c:/newFolder/myFile.txt";
         
          FileInputStream fis= null;
          FileOutputStream fos = null;
          try {
                 //1- Copy file from sourcePath to destinationPath
                 fis = new FileInputStream(sourcePath);
                 fos = new FileOutputStream(destinationPath);
                 byte[] b = new byte[1024];
                 int ch;
                 while ((ch = fis.read(b)) != -1) { //read bytes from myFile.txt
                       fos.write(b, 0, ch); //write bytes in myFileCopy.txt
                 }
                 fos.flush(); // bytes in buffer are written in file
                
                 System.out.println(sourcePath+" has been successfully moved to " + destinationPath);
          } catch (IOException e) {
                 e.printStackTrace();
          } finally {
                 try {
                       if (fis != null){
                              fis.close(); //close FileInputStream
                       }
                       if (fos != null){
                              fos.close(); //close FileOutputStream
                       }
                 } catch (IOException e) {
                       e.printStackTrace();
                 }
          }
         
          //2- delete file from sourcePath
          new File(sourcePath).delete();
