Moving and Deleting Files and Folders (Review Exercises)
00:00 Time for some review exercises. These are meant for you to practice the methods and attributes and concepts that you learned about in this course. So go ahead and do this by yourself on your computer.
Create a new directory in your home folder, and call it
my_folder/, create three files,
image1.png. Then move the file
image1.png to a new directory called
images/ inside of the
my_folder/ directory. Delete the file called
file1.txt, and then also delete the
my_folder/ directory. Of course, do all of this using Python’s
pathlib module, right?
I don’t want you to use your operating system’s graphical user interface to do all that, but instead you should do it using Python’s
pathlib module to practice all the things that you learned about in this course.
Going over exercises like this a couple of times really helps you to solidify the learning that you take away from this course and makes you get more acquainted and more familiar with the methods in the
pathlib module and with working with files and folders in Python.
