Hi
In C# or VB.NET I can use this command to copy files

System.IO.File.Copy("SourceFile", "DestFile");

But this command only useful if I have small files

But if I have large file 600MB it’s so important to catch the progress of the operation

My question is : how can I copy file in C# and catch the progress of the operation ??

Thanks with my best regarding

hi

I know about this concept from the first time but I say to myself maybe there’s a direct way by using the new .net 2.0 functions

But because you give me the same concept .. no way I will start use it :) like before
