If the destination path ends with a file separator (With a slash), the file or folder is located in that path:

Otherwise, if the destination path has the file or folder name at the end, action will be taken with renaming support:

If the “Overwrite” field’s checkbox status is:

True: If there is no file/folder with the same name in the relevant directory, the move is performed. If there is a file/folder with the same name in the relevant directory, the old file/folder is overwritten and moved.


False: If there is no file/folder with the same name in the relevant directory, the move is performed. If there is a file/folder with the same name in the relevant directory, the move will not be performed. The function gets an error with the message that there is file/folder already in the directory.
