you can only archive that goal if you have strict naming conventions for your destination files.
You need to isolate a naming - pattern. Therefore you need to analyse the files already stored in the destination directory to find the last file that has been copied to the directory.
How are your files named in your destination directory? Is it random or are those files following a naming convention as well?
F.e. are ONLY the copied files start with "1" ?

maybe this might help
public void CopyFiles(string sourceDir, string targetDir)
        {
            string[] sourceFiles = Directory.GetFiles(sourceDir);
            for (int i = 0; i < sourceFiles.Length; i++)
            {
                string sourceFile = sourceFiles[i];
                string targetFile = FreeFileNamePattern(targetDir);                
                File.Copy(sourceFile, targetFile, true);
            }
}


        private string FreeFileNamePattern(string source)
        {
            string fileName = Path.Combine(source, "10011.mp3");

            int i = 2;
            while (File.Exists(fileName))
            {
                fileName = Path.Combine(source, string.Concat("1", i.ToString("000"),"1.mp3"));
                i++;
            }
            return fileName;
        }
