We are trying to move multiple files in a folder to another folder in the same server. We are using the below command.

lrename folder1 folder1/Complete

It is currently to moving the files, not sure if there is something we are missing in the syntax.

Your help will be very much appreciated.

The lrename command (which is an operation on the local system, i.e. on the CompleteFTP server on which it is running) only renames a file or a directory.  It cannot move files from one directory to another.

Okay, thank you. Maybe I have misunderstood some of the FAQs that I read as I was browsing through.

Is there a move command that I can use to move files into another folder after I have copied the files to another server through FTP.

I am able to copy the files over to another server successfully, but after that I need to move the files to "Processed" folder.

Or if there is no FTP command to move files can I call a batch script on the FTP script tab on CompleteFTP after the FTP connection is closed?

I have checked on this link and I could not find a command I could use; https://enterprisedt.com/products/completeftp/doc/guide/html/scriptcommandreference.html

CompleteFTP has what is called process triggers which will do what you want. You can run a powershell script or a batch script to copy or move uploaded files to anywhere. Have a look in the user guide under Events -> Process triggers.
