You can to copy the file using low level function.
FOPEN, FREAD, FWRITE, FCLOSE and track the number of bytes being written.

I did not test this but it will give you a headstart


hFile = FOPEN(cFileName, 0) && get handle to file
hFileDestination = FCREATE(cFileName1, 0) && get handle to destination file
nFileSize = FSEEK(hFile,0,2) && go to end of file
= FSEEK(hFile,0,0) && go to beginning of file
nWritten = 0
DO WHILE NOT FEOF(hFile)
      cLine = FREAD(hFile,1024)
        = FWRITE(hFileDestination,cLine)
        nWritten = nWritten+1024
       WAIT WINDOW STR(MIN(nWritten/nFileSize,1)*100,6,2)+'%' NOWAIT
ENDDO
= FCLOSE(hFile)
= FCLOSE(hFileDestination)
WAIT CLEAR
