The Directory.Move method moves an existing directory to a new specified directory with full path.  The Move method takes two parameters. The Move method deletes the original directory.

string sourceDirName = @"C:\Temp";
string destDirName = @"C:\NewTemp";
try
{
    Directory.Move(sourceDirName, destDirName);
}
catch (IOException exp)
{
    Console.WriteLine(exp.Message);
}
