sorry, but I am not sure if I get  your problem right.
Can you be more specific?

Do you want to sync the content of two folders?
Folder 1 has 10 files.
Folder 2 has 35 files.

After copy Folder 1 and 2 both have 45 files?
Or just folder 2 should contain 45 files after copy?

what do you mean by "recopy until 35" ?

In your destination folder you have 35 files / items.
In your source folder you have 10 files / items.

You want in your destination folder to be as many copies of your source folder files as items are in your destination folder originally?
what to do:
a.) 35 destination, 10 in source => copy 10 files 35 times in your destination folder?
b.) 35 destination, 10 in source => 70 files should be in destination afterwards. 2 times all from source and 1st 5 from source to reach 35 copies.

Or did I still not get it?

    if destination have 80  and source have 10 the total in destination is 160 toal  
    if the destination is 120 total will be 240

now I get it
how should the files be named that are copied into the destination directory?
the sample is pretty much straight forward...

I wrote two methods. One to be called directly and one to find a free filename if destination file already exists.

just call "DoubleFileAmount" directly. You have to pass the source and the destination directory as parameters.

Hope this is what you were looking for :)
 
//function to be called by other code
        private void DoubleFileAmount(string source_folder, string destination_folder)
        {
            if (!Directory.Exists(source_folder))
                throw new Exception("Sourcefolder does not exist");

            if (!Directory.Exists(destination_folder))
                throw new Exception("Destinationfolder does not exist");

            if(Directory.GetFiles(source_folder).Length == 0)
                throw new Exception("Sourcefolder is empty");

            if (Directory.GetFiles(destination_folder).Length == 0)
                throw new Exception("Destinationfolder is empty");


            List<string> sourceFiles =  Directory.GetFiles(source_folder).ToList();
            int destinationFileAmount = Directory.GetFiles(destination_folder).Length;

            int fullCopies = (int)Math.Floor((decimal)destinationFileAmount / (decimal)sourceFiles.Count);
            int fillUps = destinationFileAmount % sourceFiles.Count;

            for (int i = 1; i <= fullCopies; i++)
            {
                foreach (string sourceFile in sourceFiles)
                {
                    FileInfo fi = new FileInfo(sourceFile);
                    string destination = Path.Combine(destination_folder, fi.Name.Replace(fi.Extension, string.Concat("_", i.ToString("000"), fi.Extension)));
                    if (File.Exists(destination))
                        destination = FreeFileName(destination, i.ToString("000"));

                    File.Copy(sourceFile, destination);
                }
            }

            fullCopies++;
            for(int i = 1; i <= fillUps; i++)
            {
                FileInfo fi = new FileInfo(sourceFiles[i-1]);

                string destination = Path.Combine(destination_folder, fi.Name.Replace(fi.Extension, string.Concat("_", fullCopies.ToString("000"), fi.Extension)));
                if (File.Exists(destination))
                    destination = FreeFileName(destination, fullCopies.ToString("000"));

                File.Copy(fi.FullName, destination);
            }
        }

        //internal function
        private string FreeFileName(string source, string marker)
        { 
            string fileName = source;
            while (File.Exists(fileName))
            {
                FileInfo fi = new FileInfo(source);
                fileName = Path.Combine(fi.Directory.FullName, fi.Name.Replace(fi.Extension, string.Concat("_", marker, fi.Extension)));
            }
            return fileName;
        }
