gvfs-move moves a file from SOURCE to DEST, or multiple SOURCEs to DIRECTORY.

gvfs-move is similar to the traditional mv utility, but using gvfs locations instead of local files: for example you can use something like smb://server/resource/file.txt as location.


The following options are understood:

-h, --help

Prints a short help text and exits.

-T, --no-target-directory

Don't move into DEST even if it is a directory.

-p, --progress

Show progress.

-i, --interactive

Prompt before overwriting files.


Preserve all attributes.

-b, --backup

Backup existing destination files.

exit status

On success 0 is returned, a non-zero failure code otherwise.
