Possible to copy sub-directories?

If I want to copy a whole directory including the sub-directories and the files there, how do I do it?
Is there a simple way?
I use Delphi Developer 2.0..

Thanx!

The easiest way is to call the Windows 95 shell function ShFileOperation.  (Add ShellApi to your uses clause.)

E.g.  To copy C:\Test to C:\Temp, with a progress window:

procedure CopyDirs;
var
      FileOp: TSHFileOpStruct;
      sTo, sFrom: array[0..79] of Byte;
begin
      FillChar(FileOp, SizeOf(FileOp), 0);
      FileOp.Wnd := Self.Handle;
      FileOp.wFunc := FO_COPY;
      FillChar(sFrom, SizeOf(sFrom), 0);
      FillChar(sTo, SizeOf(sTo), 0);
      StrPCopy(@sFrom, 'C:\Test');
      StrPCopy(@sTo, 'C:\Temp');
      FileOp.pFrom := PChar(@sFrom);
      FileOp.pTo := PChar(@sTo);
      FileOp.fFlags := FOF_SIMPLEPROGRESS or FOF_RENAMEONCOLLISION or FOF_NOCONFIRMMKDIR;
      SHFileOperation(FileOp);
end;

The above example will copy C:\Test INTO C:\Temp, i.e. to C:\Temp\Test.
If you want to copy the contents of C:\Test into C:\Temp, i.e. C:\Test\Sub is copied to C:\Temp\Sub, change the following line
    StrPCopy(@sFrom, 'C:\Test');
to
    StrPCopy(@sFrom, 'C:\Test\*.*');
