Although the Documents and Media API lets you copy and move entities, these operations have some important caveats and limitations. Keep these things in mind when copying entities:
- There’s no way to copy files—you can only copy folders. However, copying a folder also copies its contents, which can include files.
- Folders can only be copied within their current repository.
The move operation doesn’t have these restrictions. It’s possible to move files and folders between different repositories. In general, however, the move operation is a bit more complicated than the copy operation. For example, the API’s behavior changes depending on whether you move entities to a different repository or within the same one.
The tutorials in this section cover these differences, and more.
