Hi,

Try this:

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls, FileCtrl;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    flb: TFileListBox;
    btnCopy: TButton;
    procedure btnCopyClick(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

const Dest = 'a:\';

function DiskInDrive(Drive: Char): Boolean;
var
  ErrorMode: word;
begin
  Drive := UpCase(Drive);
  if not (Drive in ['A'..'Z']) then
    raise EConvertError.Create('Not a valid drive ID');
  ErrorMode := SetErrorMode(SEM_FailCriticalErrors);
  try
    if DiskSize(Ord(Drive) - $40) = -1 then
      DiskInDrive := False
    else
      DiskInDrive := True;
  finally
    SetErrorMode(ErrorMode);
  end;
end;

function CopyAFile(const fname, FromFolder, ToFolder: string): boolean;
