shutil has many methods you can use. One of which is:

from shutil import copyfile
copyfile(src, dst)
  • Copy the contents of the file named src to a file named dst.
  • The destination location must be writable; otherwise, an IOError exception will be raised.
  • If dst already exists, it will be replaced.
  • Special files such as character or block devices and pipes cannot be copied with this function.
  • With copy , src and dst are path names given as strings.

If you use os.path operations, use copy rather than copyfile. copyfile will only accept strings.
