Hi there!

I would like my program to calculate the total size of the files and folders present on the cdrom as well as number of files and folders, then copy the entire cdrom to a folder on harddrive and report if success or fail.

Kind regards,

Paul

Something like this..thanks to Madshi I believe :)

procedure CopyDir(FromDir, ToDir : string);
var
 FOS :tSHFileOpStruct;
begin
  FromDir := Trim(FromDir);
  if FromDir[Length(FromDir)] <> '\' then FromDir := FromDir + '\';
  ToDir := Trim(ToDir);
  with FOS do
  begin
    Wnd := Application.Handle;
    wFunc := FO_COPY;
    pFrom := PChar(FromDir + '*.*' + #0);
    pTo := PChar(ToDir + #0);
    fFlags := FOF_ALLOWUNDO or FOF_MULTIDESTFILES or FOF_NOCONFIRMMKDIR;
  end;
  SHFileOperation(FOS);
end;

// usage:
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  CopyDir('c:\tools','d:\tools');
  CopyDir('a:\', 'c:\archive');
end;

you can also look in folder recursively if you want to make a dialog showing "File ......xxxx..... being copied"

For total size of the CD you can use DiskSize function, DiskSize(i) where i=
1 = A drive
2 = B drive
3 = C drive
