set fs=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
  
'Getting the file to be copied
set f=fs.GetFile("d:\GFG.txt")
  
'Reading the contents of the file
set ts=f.OpenAsTextStream(1)
Response.Write("Original File Content: " & ts.ReadAll)
ts.Close
  
'Moving the file to the given path
f.Move("d:\newfolder\GFG.txt")
  
Response.write("<br>" & "File is Moved!" & "<br>")
  
'Getting the moved file
set f=fs.GetFile("d:\newfolder\GFG.txt")
  
'Reading the contents of the moved file
