Save checkedListBox file list to USB drive

I am trying to save a list of files in my checkedListBox to a drive.

I have searched and attempted to use a number of examples on the web.  Including those listed in the Code section and many others.

What would be the easiest operation to run?
File.Copy(sourceFileName, strDrive, overwrite);
 
            // create a file stream, where "c:\\testing.txt" is the file path
            System.IO.FileStream fs = new System.IO.FileStream("saveFileDialog1.FileName", System.IO.FileMode.OpenOrCreate, System.IO.FileAccess.Write, System.IO.FileShare.ReadWrite);
 
            // create a stream writer
            System.IO.StreamWriter sw = new System.IO.StreamWriter(fs, System.Text.Encoding.ASCII);
 
            // write to file (buffer), where textbox1 is your text box
            sw.Write(txtDestination.Text);
 
            // flush buffer (so the text really goes into the file)
            sw.Flush();
 
            // close stream writer and file
            sw.Close(); fs.Close();
        }
 
 
 
 
 
    // Store in a string array
            string[] drives = Environment.GetLogicalDrives();
            // Loop into the string array
            foreach (string strDrive in drives)
            {
                // Add items (drives) to the list
                checkedListBox2.Items.Add(strDrive.ToString());
            }
 
            // Insert code to save a file.
            
            foreach (int indexChecked in checkedListBox1.CheckedIndices)
            {
                // The indexChecked variable contains the index of the item.
                MessageBox.Show("Index#: " + indexChecked.ToString() + ", is checked. Checked state is:" +
                                checkedListBox1.GetItemCheckState(indexChecked).ToString() + ".");
            }

Just by modifying your code slightly...
// Insert code to save a file.
StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();            
            foreach (int indexChecked in checkedListBox1.CheckedIndices)
            {
                // The indexChecked variable contains the index of the item.
                //MessageBox.Show("Index#: " + indexChecked.ToString() + ", is checked. Checked stateis:" 
                //+ checkedListBox1.GetItemCheckState(indexChecked).ToString() + ".");
 
                sb.AppendLine("Index#: " + indexChecked.ToString() + ", is checked. Checked state is:" + 
                checkedListBox1.GetItemCheckState(indexChecked).ToString() + ".");
 
            }
 
System.IO.File.WriteAllText("File location on drive...", sb.ToString());
