Please refer below code.


string sourceFile = "D:\\document.xml";
string destinationFile = "D:\\test.txt";
if (File.Exists(sourceFile))
    FileInfo file = new FileInfo(sourceFile);
    if (file.CreationTime < DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(-2) || file.LastWriteTime < DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(-2))
        System.IO.File.Move(sourceFile, destinationFile);


Dim sourceFile As String = "D:\document.xml"
Dim destinationFile As String = "D:\test.txt"
If File.Exists(sourceFile) Then
	Dim file__1 As New FileInfo(sourceFile)
	If file__1.CreationTime < DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(-2) OrElse file__1.LastWriteTime < DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(-2) Then
		System.IO.File.Move(sourceFile, destinationFile)
	End If
End If

I hope this will help you out.
