Dim m_fso As FileSystemObject
Dim CFile As File, NFile As File, CFileStr As String, NFileStr As String, IFileindex As Long, CopyStatus As Long

Set m_fso = New FileSystemObject

''''''''
' I have 2 list boxes with 3000 filenames and paths in each, dont worry about the finer details of it!
''''''''
CFileStr = LstCFileList.List(IFileindex)
NFileList = LstNFileList.List(IFileindex)

If m_fso.FileExists(CFileStr) Then
   Set CFile = m_fso.GetFile(CFileStr)
   Set NFile = m_fso.GetFile(NFileStr)
           If CFile.Size <> NFile.Size Then
                CopyStatus = 1
            End If
'''''
' More comparissons between NFile and CFile, if an inconsistency is found, copystatus is also set to 1
'''''  
    If CopyStatus = 1 Then
        m_fso.CopyFile NFile, CFile, True
End If

*by the way, this is all part of a huge "For Next" loop that will incriment iFileIndex and rerun this script until all the files have been checked

you better try this one, because when a file is not found, one of the objects is empty and the file isnt copied

If CopyStatus = 1 Then
        m_fso.CopyFile NFileList, CFileStr, True
End If
