Move a file or directory into another directory in a simple way

Availability: SharpBox 1.0.3

The following example shows how to move a file or a directory of an existing cloud storage with the help of the existing comfort functions.

This example uses the implemented drop box storage provider, so it needs also a valid dropbox configuration. To get the sample up and running an own dropbox account is neccessary. Additionally a valid application key and secret is needed. If you don't have one, use our test-application.
        static void MoveFileSystemEntrySimple()
            // instanciate a new credentials object, e.g. for dropbox
            DropBox.DropBoxCredentials credentials = new AppLimit.CloudComputing.SharpBox.DropBox.DropBoxCredentials();

            // attach the application information 
            credentials.ConsumerKey = "TheApplicationKey";
            credentials.ConsumerSecret = "TheApplicationSecret";

            // add the account information
            credentials.UserName = "";
            credentials.Password = "mypassword";

            // instanciate a cloud storage configuration, e.g. for dropbox
            DropBox.DropBoxConfiguration configuration = DropBox.DropBoxConfiguration.GetStandardConfiguration();

            // instanciate the cloudstorage manager
            CloudStorage storage = new CloudStorage();

            // open the connection to the storage
            storage.Open(configuration, credentials);           

            // move a file to /Public folder
            storage.MoveFileSystemEntry("/Public/My/File.sample", "/Public");
            // move a directory to root
            storage.MoveFileSystemEntry("/Public/My/Directory", "/");
            // close the cloud storage connection
            if (storage.IsOpened)
