I need to copy files and folders from one hard drive to another. I need to get all files and subfolders/files.

I need it to create the destination directory if it doesn't exist.  The destination tree should look just like the source tree.

Need it quick. Please help.

You want to do this in Delphi?

Why not just use the DOS command xcopy?

Or if you really want to call xcopy from Delphi.

Or are you talking about writing a program to "Ghost" a hard drive?  I.e. Make a copy of the ENTIRE drive.

No. I just need to copy about 5 directories which I will hardcode the path in.
