I am using the code below to upload an image but I get an error message if the file already exist. How do I check if the file already exist and if it does inform users with a message box?
 
Dim DestinationPath As String = Application.StartupPath & "\Images\" & IO.Path.GetFileName(C1Image.Text)
        IO.File.Copy(C1Image.Text, DestinationPath)

Thanks,

Victor

Try something like:
    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim DestinationPath As String = IO.Path.Combine(Application.StartupPath & "\Images", IO.Path.GetFileName(C1Image.Text))
        If IO.File.Exists(DestinationPath) Then
            If MessageBox.Show("Destination already exists!" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & "File: " & DestinationPath, "Replace File?", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, MessageBoxIcon.Question) = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.Yes Then
                IO.File.Copy(C1Image.Text, DestinationPath, True)
            End If
        Else
            IO.File.Copy(C1Image.Text, DestinationPath)
        End If
    End Sub
