            strSourcePath = "C:\moves\"
            strDestPath = destination
            File.Copy(strSourcePath, strDestPath)

from the code I see you are using VB.NET. IF yes, then you can use this method

My.Computer.FileSystem.CopyDirectory(strSourcePath, destination)

if you are using c#, then you would need to do a recursive loop trough each subdirectory and copy all files in them.
Was my idea helpful?
were you able to test my solution?
I found this helpful.  It would be great to see how to loop through and restrict copying of specific files.  For example, if you wanted to copy all files in the directory except those that contained "secure" in the name.
