The path to the item to be moved.


The path of the destination container.


Providers override this method to give the user the ability to move provider objects using the move-item cmdlet.

Providers that declare ProviderCapabilities of ExpandWildcards, Filter, Include, or Exclude should ensure that the path and items being moved meets those requirements by accessing the appropriate property from the base class.

By default overrides of this method should not move objects over existing items unless the Force property is set to true. For instance, the FileSystem provider should not move c:\temp\foo.txt over c:\bar.txt if c:\bar.txt already exists unless the Force parameter is true.

If destination exists and is a container then Force isn't required and path should be moved into the destination container as a child.

The default implementation of this method throws an PSNotSupportedException.
