File.Copy Method

File.Copy Method does not let use template for copying files,
I can not use File.Copy("C:\A BC\*.txt", "C:\XYZ\*.t xt")

but I need to use such way:
File.Copy("C:\A BC\1.txt", "C:\XYZ\1.t xt")
File.Copy("C:\A BC\2.txt", "C:\XYZ\2.t xt")

Does exist way in .Net for copying file by template?

Use the File.Directory. GetFiles method to filter your directory.

Then call File.Copy for each item in GetFiles.

You'll have to loop through the directory and copy the files one by one:

Dim SourceDir As String = "C\ABC"
Dim DestDir As String = "C:\XYZ"
Dim DestFile As String

For Each strFile As String In Directory.GetFi les(SourceDir, "*.txt")
DestFile = strFile.Replace (SourceDir, DestDir)
File.Copy(strFi le, DestFile)
Next strFile
hope that helps..

Hi, I have a problem that is sporadic and am thinking it may come down to a timing issue. I have an asp.net (vb) app that used the system.io.file.copy method to copy a .pdf file from a network drive to the local server drive. From there I use that .pdf file to create another .pdf file using a tool from ActivePDF. The problem I have is that one out of 8 or 10 times I get an error: Access to the path "c:\ActivePDF\watever.pdf" is...

I asked the question yesterday, but know better how to ask it, today: I'm trying to use the File.Copy method to copy a file from a client to server (.Net web app under IIS ). It looks to me that when I give a path like @"C:\holdfiles\myfile.txt" it looks on the server C drive. How do I pull from the client? Do I need a different class and/or method? Filestream? -- Thanks,

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
