vb.net background worker stops processing code on large file copy

Basically small files (under 500MB) all process perfectly, but large files such as 3-4GB movie files hang up the code so it never finishes...

basically it doesn't look like the BGW does anything after the bgw.reportprogress(0, filename) code. It should email and it should delete the original file, but it stops.

Does a BGW have a timeout or anything like that?

Can someone please take a look and tell me why it would only stop working on large files? It will mostly process one large file but stops directly after the bgw progress changed command.

lines 16 to 20.. Do you keep running this loop if a file is in use? What if the file doesn't release then it just sits there?
