VB File System Object and Removable Storage

Hi Everyone,
I am writing a program to perform backup operations using the VB scripting
File System Object to copy to removable media storage devices. The backup
operation works fine, but when we attempt to remove the backup device, we
often get a "Delayed Write Failed" error message, indicating that data was
cached and the copy was not actually finished before device removal.
The problem now is how can we guarantee that all data is flushed from the
file buffers. The F.S.O. doesn't seem to give us any means to do this.
Can anyone help?
Thanks, and regards,
Garet
