Hi,
I am working on file management, i need to rename and copy a zip file from one location to anothe location.
i had used the command (copyfile), for the data transfer from one location to another.
Problem:
At the time of Copy, i had same zip file name. so it is taking only one file other file is getting replaced. but i need to have both the files in the same location with renaming.
how to proceed that? can you please help me in this

Yes, but i had around 500 Folder and inside every folder i had a ZIP file, all are different data, but some times, in some folder consist of same ZIP name as resemble in another folder but the data are diffrenent, if i wrtie thorugh MATLAB, it is oerwritting, if i do manually it took lot of effort.
so is there any simple way to rename for such kind of scenarios ?

I think you should be able to first use the movefile command to rename the other file.

Hello
Thanks
If i tried to move the file to one folder, but i tried to move other file to same folder which is of same name, it is overwriting with previous one. so my first data is not available.
can you sugges me is there any specific command for this ?

I'm not sure what you want to do if a file of the same name exists. But, you can use the isfile command to check whether the file exists in the location. If it does, then you could use the movefile command to rename it.
