wish helps you The Apache Commons IO FIleUtils class has the moveFile method. You simply need to specify the "new name" as part of the destFile argument.
2943    public static void moveFile(final File srcFile, final File destFile) throws IOException {
2944        if (srcFile == null) {
2945            throw new NullPointerException("Source must not be null");
2946        }
2947        if (destFile == null) {
2948            throw new NullPointerException("Destination must not be null");
2949        }
2950        if (!srcFile.exists()) {
2951            throw new FileNotFoundException("Source '" + srcFile + "' does not exist");
2952        }
2953        if (srcFile.isDirectory()) {
2954            throw new IOException("Source '" + srcFile + "' is a directory");
2955        }
2956        if (destFile.exists()) {
2957            throw new FileExistsException("Destination '" + destFile + "' already exists");
2958        }
2959        if (destFile.isDirectory()) {
2960            throw new IOException("Destination '" + destFile + "' is a directory");
2961        }
2962        final boolean rename = srcFile.renameTo(destFile);
2963        if (!rename) {
2964            copyFile( srcFile, destFile );
2965            if (!srcFile.delete()) {
2966                FileUtils.deleteQuietly(destFile);
2967                throw new IOException("Failed to delete original file '" + srcFile +
2968                        "' after copy to '" + destFile + "'");
2969            }
2970        }
2971    }

With these it helps This will append the date (_YYYYMMDD) to all .SQL files in the E:\Scripts\ directory, then move them to the E:\Scripts\OBIEE\ subfolder.
@echo off
cd E:\Scripts\
set cur_yyyy=%date:~10,4%
set cur_mm=%date:~4,2%
set cur_dd=%date:~7,2%
for /f %%f in ('dir /b *.sql') do (
rename %%f %%~nf_%cur_yyyy%%cur_mm%%cur_dd%%%~xf
move %%~nf_%cur_yyyy%%cur_mm%%cur_dd%%%~xf ./OBIEE/

Moving file with Java changes directory to .eml

it helps some times The target in Files.move(source, target, options) is the actual target of the move. With REPLACE_EXISTING your call will remove the existing target (your directory) and then move the source to that name.
A directory will only be removed if it's empty*, otherwise the call with throw a DirectoryNotEmptyException.
public void moveFile(String source, String targetDir)
    Path dirpath = Paths.get(targetDir);

    if (Files.exists(dirpath)) {

        Path target = dirpath.resolve(targetDir);

        try {
            Files.move(Paths.get(source), dirpath.resolve(target), REPLACE_EXISTING);
        catch (IOException e) {
            // TODO Auto-generated catch block
    else {
        new File(targetDir).mkdir();
        moveFile(source, targetDir);

this one helps. I am trying to move all files I have stored in a sub-directories to the Parent Directory they all belong to.
   private static void move(File toDir, File currDir) {
        for (File file : currDir.listFiles()) {
            if (file.isDirectory()) {
                move(toDir, file);
            } else {
                file.renameTo(new File(toDir, file.getName()));

wish help you to fix your issue Figured out the issue. In my code before doing a rollback, I am doing a backup, in that method I am using this section to do the copy
if (Files.exists(Paths.get(contentPath)) && Files.list(Paths.get(contentPath)).count() > 0) {
        copyPath(Paths.get(contentPath), Paths.get(tmpContentPath));
try (Stream<Path> fileList = Files.list(Paths.get(contentPath))) {
        if (Files.exists(Paths.get(contentPath)) && fileList.count() > 0) {
            copyPath(Paths.get(contentPath), Paths.get(tmpContentPath));
