Thanks alot!

For future referance to anyone else:

        Dim oRAPI As New RAPI
        Try
            oRAPI.Connect()
            If oRAPI.Connected Then
                oRAPI.CopyFileFromDevice("C:\Documents and Settings\ross\Desktop\ExportFile.txt", "\My Documents\Personal\ExportFile.txt", True)
                oRAPI.Disconnect()
            End If
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message, MsgBoxStyle.Critical, " Device Rename Error")
        End Try

Open in new window
