Hi!

Maybe this will help:

uses
  Windows, SysUtils, ShellAPI, FileCtrl;

procedure SHCopyFile(hWndOwner: HWND; const SourceFile, TargetFile: string);
var Info: TSHFileOpStruct;
    Aborted : Bool;
begin
  Aborted := False;
  with Info do
  begin
    Wnd := hWndOwner;
    wFunc := FO_COPY;

{ From Microsoft's Help:
  wFunc = Operation to perform. This member can be one of the following values:
  FO_COPY Copies the files specified by pFrom to the location specified by pTo.
  FO_DELETE Deletes the files specified by pFrom (pTo is ignored).
  FO_MOVE Moves the files specified by pFrom to the location specified by pTo.
  FO_RENAME Renames the files specified by pFrom. }

    pFrom := pChar(SourceFile);
    pTo := pChar(TargetFile);
    fFlags := 0;
    fAnyOperationsAborted := Aborted;
  end;
  try
    SHFileOperation(Info);
  finally
    if Aborted then; { enact upon any user cancellations }
  end;
end;

BTW, TSHFileOpStruct is defined in ShellAPI as follows:

TSHFileOpStruct = record
   Wnd: HWND;
   wFunc: UINT;
   pFrom: PAnsiChar;
   pTo: PAnsiChar;
   fFlags: FILEOP_FLAGS;
   fAnyOperationsAborted: BOOL;
   hNameMappings: Pointer;
   lpszProgressTitle: PAnsiChar;
 end;

oracle_beginner,

what kind of error do you want to handle? If you are not interested in one specific error try it like this:

if ShFileOperation(AFileOpStruct) <> 0 then
begin
  ShowMessage(SysErrorMessage(GetLastError));
  exit;
end;

Win32 APIs don't raise exceptions, they return result codes!

Then take a look at the System Error Codes page in the PSDK:

// ...
26 The specified disk or diskette cannot be accessed. ERROR_NOT_DOS_DISK
39 The disk is full. ERROR_HANDLE_DISK_FULL
112 There is not enough space on the disk. ERROR_DISK_FULL
// ...

PS: It seems like SHFileOperation doesn't fail (return value <> 0) when there's no disk in drive A:. You have to check it on your own.
