As Leo pointed out, I do not believe you can move files.

Hi.

To move files between directory you need first to copy them to the desired directory and them from the original position.

dir flash:

Directory of flash:/

    1  -rw-    66562172  Mar 29 2012 13:27:48 +02:00  c2800nm-adventerprisek9-mz.151-3.T3.bin

    2  -rw-     4832344  Mar 29 2012 14:20:54 +02:00  anyconnect-macosx-i386-2.4.1012-k9.pkg

    3  -rw-     3203909  Mar 29 2012 14:21:36 +02:00  anyconnect-win-2.4.1012-k9.pkg

    4  -rw-     5209423  Mar 29 2012 14:22:42 +02:00  anyconnect-linux-2.4.1012-k9.pkg

Router#mkdir newdir

Router#dir newdir

Directory of flash:/newdir/

  100  -rw-     4832344  Sep 19 2013 11:34:12 +02:00  anyconnect-macosx-i386-2.4.1012-k9.pkg

Router#delete /force flash:anyconnect-macosx-i386-2.4.1012-k9.pkg

You can also change directory by issuing cd dirname and check in which directory are you looking in:

Router#cd newdir

Router#pwd

flash:/newdir/

HTH
