When the program copy files, the text box Total_Percentage_Done is not being updated
It copied all of the files from one directory into another, but the text box showing
percentage completed never got updated.

This line with a  99 mark can be found below
 99     Total_Percentage_Done.Text = Total_Percentage_Completed   <-- Problem

Try adding a DoEvents before your Next line:

DoEvents
Next object_File

DoEvents passes control to the OS so it can process messages in its queue.I usually put one in a loop such as For/Next, Do/Until,While/Wend to allow things to update,such as a Label or a Progress Bar.
