I am trying to go through a directory structure and copy all of the files in each directory.  I have it working so the files are copied but I can't figure out how to recursively search all of the directories.

This is cumbersome to program, simple for DOS.

SHELL( "XCOPY " & source & " /S /E " & target)

Also have ExecCmd that makes VB wait for child to finish before continuing.

Let me know if you want code to ExecCmd

I want to be able to do it through the GUI.  I just need to know how to go back a directory.  I'm getting to the last directory and getting stuck.  I've tried:
 dirPath.Path = dirPath.List(DirPath.ListIndex - 1).  Obviousely that's wrong but I don't know why.

I have a project that recurses through a directory tree and displays it in a tree mode.  You could use this to go up and down the tree, doing what ever you can get away with to the files.  Email me at cymbolic@aol.com, and I'll send it to you.
