I am using this code and all i get is False returned when i try and use the renameTO() method
<%-- java include files --%>
<%@ page import="*" %>
<%@ page import="" %>
//starts going through the list of pdf files
File old = new File("/inet/docroot/CorporateResources/Newsclippings/upload/02-01-11_R01.pdf");
File moved = new File("/inet/docroot/dabrey/Newsclippings/clippings/02/01/02-01-11_R01.pdf");

boolean flag = false;
flag = old.renameTo(moved);
catch(Exception e) {
