Place a button on a form and copy this over the onclick event

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ShellExecute(Form1.Handle, nil, 'rundll32.exe', 'diskcopy.dll,DiskCopyRunDll', nil, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
end;

This will execute it, however the dialog does not check the readiness of any removable drives until a copy operation is started (This may or may not be what you want).

Hope this helps

Can you also tell me how this works with the format option..
I found it in shell.dll but I don't know how to execute it.

Thanks,

Sure, it is like this

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ShellExecute(Form1.Handle, nil, 'rundll32.exe', 'shell32.dll, SHFormatDrive', nil, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
end;

No problem

Thanks again, Heath

I tried it with shell.dll and that didn't work.

Thanks again.
