I am using dll in my .net code for moving files from one location to another location using Session.MoveFile(String sourcePath, String targetPath) method.
I am getting below error

- Error moving file '/Winscpdemo/IN/file1.xml' to '/Winscpdemo_Archive/file1.xml'.
WinSCP.SessionRemoteException: Error moving file '/Winscpdemo/IN/file1.xml' to '/Winscpdemo_Archive/file1.xml'. ---> WinSCP.SessionRemoteException: General failure (server should provide error description).
Error code: 4
Error message from server (en): Internal server error.

We can hardly help you with server's "Internal error".

Can you move the file in WinSCP GUI or in any other SFTP client?
