hey, I am currently copying directories (including subdirectories) with the SHFileOperation api call.  It won't work if the Source directory ends with a "\" so naturally i just take out the "\" and it works perfectly.  The problem I am having is copying roots.  If you select like "C:\" it won't work.  I need to know how to copy roots such as "C:\" or "D:\", any help would be greatly appreciated.  If you need my code to be posted say so and I will post it.  Thanx guys.
