shutil module contains many functions but two of them can be used to copy files from one location to another. To demonstrate this, I created two text files as shown in the image below:
You can copy the content of the
file1.txt to the
file2.txt. This way, both files will have the same content but they will still have their original names.
>>> import shutil >>> new_file_path = shutil.copy('file1.txt', 'file2.txt')
