Open the file in read-only mode.
If the file cannot be opened in read-only mode, it can not be copied.
Open the destination file.
Read the source file.
Write the destination file.
Repeat until done.
Close both files.

File.Copy and File.CopyTo DO NOT COPY CONTENTS OF FILE!@
I posted on here before but no one has been of any help. I am trying to copy files of type .zip .jpg and .pdf from ones folder to another (I dont want to move it, just make a copy). How can I do this? When I use File.Copy and File.CopyTo it makes a new file in the right folder but has no content and it also erases the content on the orignal file. WTF? This is really making me mad.

SB 0.8 Win XP Pro SP2 Mandriva Linux Hi, I would like to share the calendar files I am currently using in Sunbird WinXP with Linux, using Sunbird Linux and perhaps other open source calendaring applications at times.

there are source files but no project file or solution file
I am working on a project, which only provides some .vb, .aspx, and other files. But there is no solution file or project file. How can I instal them in the development environment under .net visual studio 2005?   Thanks   David 1. Open Web Site from VS.NET 2005 to open this folder; 2. File -> Save All after you open the folder. VS.NET will pop up a window to let you save the project. Usually, after you save it, a .sln file will be saved to folder \Visual Studio 2005\Projects\YOURFOLDERNAME\ i f you don't change the folder for saving. Hope it helps."Objec...

How to open a file in another application
I give up. I have looked around and cannot see the best way to do what I want. My window is given a string which is the path+name of a file. I want the user to be able to press a button or double-click an icon and thus open that file READONLY using the application associated with the extension of the file in windows (eg peterpan.doc would be opened by MS Word and superman.txt would be opened by Notepad). There seem to be quite a number of ways that might be able to be used - PFC File Service, Run() and OLEControl are a selection. But I can't see which would be best. And I...

File.Copy does not release the lock on the copied file.
 Hi! I am trying to use the File.Copy function in order to copy a file from the Client's PC to the Server. The File to be copied is selected by the user using the FileUpload control and is then used by the server to perform certain operations. My problem is that when I copy the file using the File.Copy method and then execute a streamreader process on the file straight after, I get the following error; "The process cannot access the file '\\syddev1\latest\xmasEmail.html' because it is being used by another process. " Below is the piece of code where the problem...

File::Copy::copy() dies on identical files?
I'm giving File::Copy's tests a bit of a face-lift and I came across this: eval { copy("copy-$$", "copy-$$") }; printf "ok %d\n", 15+$loopconst unless $@ =~ /are identical/ && -s "copy-$$"; which basically says, "copy() should die if given the same source and destination file" which is a little extreme. Warn perhaps, but not die. I think it's just parroting the behavior of the 'cp' shell command. If nobody has any objections, I'll downgrade that to a warning and copy() just succeeds. P...
