Read the examples of fileset in Apache Ant document and do the changes as
per it. It should work.

Including the file name in your script should work.

Thanks and Regards,

I am guessing here. Is there some process keeping a lock on those files or
folders that left behind in source directory?

Subject: moving directories


I'm trying to move directories that have a certain pattern in their name to
another directory using the command below

                        <move todir="${backUp.dir}" failonerror="true">

                                    <fileset dir="${root.dir}">




So for example, I would like to move all directories (and all of their
contents) that have name of the pattern "UHM-*" to a backup directory. The
above command does move the directories over to the backup dir but not all
of the contents of the directories. It leaves behind the directories UHM-*
in the original directory and also creates the same in the backup directory.

Can anyone please tell me why the above command does not execute
