Copy Files that match a pattern

I have two files that are being copied to a folder. One file name contains the word "email" and the other "ftp". I am trying to figure out how to take all the items that contan "ftp" and move them to another drive. Does anyone have a good idea how to accomplish?

You basically want to get all the files in the folder and then for each of them, check if they match a pattern.

    Dim strFileSize As String = ""
    Dim di As New IO.DirectoryInfo("C:\temp")
    Dim aryFi As IO.FileInfo() = di.GetFiles("*.txt")
    Dim fi As IO.FileInfo

    For Each fi In aryFi
        If(fi.Name.Contains("email")) Then
           // do something
        Else If (fi.Name.Contains("ftp")) Then
           // do something else
    Next
