  IShellItem            *psiParentDst,
  LPCWSTR               pszNameDst,
  TRANSFER_SOURCE_FLAGS flags,
  IShellItem            **ppsiNew
);

Parameters

psi

Type: IShellItem*

A pointer to the IShellItem to be moved.

Return code Description
COPYENGINE_S_USER_IGNORED
The destination item already exists and has not been overwritten. In this case, ppsiNew is NULL and the caller should delete the source item.
COPYENGINE_S_MERGE
The destination item already exists and the user has chosen to merge the source and destination folders. In this case, ppsiNew points to a NULL value and the caller should delete the source item.
E_NOINTERFACE
When the item being moved is a folder, the caller should convert a move operation into a copy and delete operation.
ERROR_NOT_SAME_DEVICE
The caller should convert a move operation into a copy and delete operation. This error is seen as HRESULT_FROM_WIN32(ERROR_NOT_SAME_DEVICE).
ERROR_FILE_EXISTS
When moving a folder, the caller should convert the move operation into a copy and delete operation. The destination item must support ITransferDestination. This error is seen as HRESULT_FROM_WIN32(ERROR_FILE_EXISTS).
ERROR_ALREADY_EXISTS
When moving a folder, the caller should convert the move operation into a copy and delete operation. The destination item must support ITransferDestination. This error is seen as HRESULT_FROM_WIN32(ERROR_ALREADY_EXISTS).
