autoit copy one directory and its structure to another directory with progress bar

Is there a way to copy for instance
e:\setupfiles\*.* to c:\somefolder
and make it show a progress bar and at the same time only copy files that are none existing?

i'm wanting to use something like this:
Func _FileCopy($pFrom,$pTo)
    ;Forget the flags.  They don't appear to work at all
    If FileExists($pTo) Then DirRemove($pTo,1);This removes the directory and all its file to prevent the annoying overwrite file confirmation message
    $winShell = ObjCreate("shell.application")

Open in new window

i can't get the below method to work at least not for visual

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'xcopy "' & 'e:\setupfiles\*.*' & '" "' & "c:\somefolder" & '" /D /E /C /R /H /I /K /Y')
