Hi.

I have managed to list folders in my listbox1 and the add them to listbox 2.
Now, what i need now is to be able to copy the list of folder in listbox2 to another location.

below is the code i am using.

Browse drive and and fill listbox1 with the folders on that drive.
Path.text hold the path to where the folders.

If FolderBrowserDialog.ShowDialog() = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
Path.Text = FolderBrowserDialog.SelectedPath


Dim Dirs As New List(Of String)
Try
Dirs.AddRange(My.Computer.FileSystem.GetDirectories(Path.Text))

ListBox1.BeginUpdate()

For Each str As String In Dirs
ListBox1.Items.Add(My.Computer.FileSystem.GetDirectoryInfo(str).Name)

ListBox1.EndUpdate()

' Remove Duplicate items

For ii As Integer = ListBox1.Items.Count - 1 To 1 Step -1

For j As Integer = ii - 1 To 0 Step -1

If ListBox1.GetItemText(ListBox1.Items(ii)) _
= ListBox1.GetItemText(ListBox1.Items(j)) Then


ListBox1.Items.RemoveAt(ii)

Exit For
End If
Next j
Next ii

If String.IsNullOrEmpty(str) Then

MsgBox("Error")

Exit Sub

End If

Next

Catch ioex As System.UnauthorizedAccessException

Catch ex As Exception
Return
End Try

End If



I just need to know how to copy the folder that are listed in listbox2 to another location.

Many Thanks
