     I have added an automatic detection of the target path. If it doesn't exist, created regardless of the depth. I have also added a verify feature to verify the copy was successful. Orig. Desc. This is a modified verision of Nabhan Ahmed's (Copy File byte by byte) found at Please give all votes to him. His description Basically, this program shows you how to copy files byte by byte. Everytime it reads 4 kbs from the source file and write them in the destination file until it reads all bytes in the srouce file. There is a bar that shows the copying progress, and there is a label that shows the copying percentage. In the new update, you can use the browse button to find the source file you want to copy. I'm sure you'll find the code very easy to understand, and that you'll like it.( Would you please vote for this code ) My Changes: The FileCopy routine was transfered to a self contained class. It checks for proper input for the FileCopy method to work. It is now completey portable.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
