I'm having problems with the c# code below.
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.IO;
using System.Text;

namespace myLog_FileCopy
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            string winfile = @"C:\Log\alog.txt";
            string unixfile = @"C:\Log\Ulog.txt";
            //rename the files

        //rename windows log file
        static void RenameWinLog(string winFile)
            string winfileRenamed = @"C:\Log\aw.txt";
            if (!SourceFileExists(winFile)) return; //Error
            File.Move(winFile, winfileRenamed);

        //rename unix log file
        static void RenameUnixLog(string unixFile)
            string unixfileRenamed = @"C:\Log\ua.txt";
            if (!SourceFileExists(unixFile)) return; //Error
            File.Move(unixFile, unixfileRenamed);

        //determine if the file exists
        bool SourceFileExists(string myFile)
            if (!System.IO.File.Exists(myFile))
                return false;
                return true;
My error: An object reference is required for the nonstatic field, method, or property 'myLog_FileCopy.Program.SourceFileExists(string)'

How do I correct this error?
