VS 2010 : Copy A File To Folder?

I'm trying to write a program where people can click a browse button, click a file to copy, and then click a second browse button and click a destination folder. I've tried

My.Computer.FileSystem.CopyFile(TextBox1.text, TextBox2.Text)

and get the error "Could not complete operation since a directory already exists in this path 'C:UsersSamDesktop'."

FileCopy TextBox1.Text, TextBox2.Text
gives me "The target file "C:UsersSamDesktop" is a directory, not a file."

Both methods work if I put C:UsersSamDesktop'filename'.'extension' in the destination. But I want the user to be able to select the destination without having to type a new file name.

Writing File/Folder Sync Prog, Result Text Boxes Not Updating Untill After All File Action Is Done Even Though Update Code Comes Before Copy?
I am working on a program using VB.Net 2010 which will enable me to setup groups of files & folders for back up with syncing capabilities etc. I have a concept program which is based on some sample code I found out in one of the VB.Net forums. I have modified it from a command line based program to a form based program. At the moment I consider this code to be a "concept" program which once I have the various copy/sync routines developed and debugged will be integrated in to another program I wrote for
creating "Back Up" groups to automate the process. There are some 3rd party programs that do similar things that I want to do such as Microsofts Sync Toy, but none of them offer the grouping and exclusions options that I am going to program in to this backup/sync program.

So here is my problem, I have the included code taking two folders, a source and a destination, and copying everything from the source to the destination. It will skip over any unchanged files/folders and will delete anything found in the destination folder that is not found in the source folder and it will update all files in the destination folder that have a newer version in the source folder. In other words it will mirror image the source to the destination but will be smart enough not to copy unchanged items from the source to the destination thereby saving a lot of time. The sync part of the program is working fine, the displaying of the progress and results is not.

System.IO.File.Copy - Move A Lot Of Pictures From FOLDER A To Another
I'm trying to move a lot of pictures from FOLDER A to another, FOLDER B. However, some of the pictures already exists in the FOLDER B. This stops my program saying it cannot copy the pictures over because they already exist. I'm trying to make it so any pictures from FOLDER A will copy over the pictures in FOLDER B if they are similar in name. Like... Folder A's pictures will just replaced the Folder B pictures if they have the same name. I was told to use the System.IO.File.Copy tool. Here is my code.

C# - Copy File With Specific Extension With Creating Folder Structure?
I want to copy files with a specific extension (for example .config or .exe). It should create a structure of nested directories, and then insert each file into a specified place in the directory hierarchy. Ideally I would just specify a parent directory for each file and a parent directory for each directory and it would build it.

I need any existing utility or batch file or power-shell script or C#/VB .Net code to perform this activity.

VS 2010 Opening Folder If File Exists In Folder
Having difficulty with the module below failing on line 21. It is telling me: The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002) Basically what it is designed to do is look for a directory, if that exists then look for a file in that directory. If both = True then it should open the folder to browse the files. I believe the issue is with the "Program Files" being 2 words since the script runs using a root path, but I'm not sure how to format the path correctly to make it work?

Program To Copy The File That The User Selects To "temp" Folder?
I have an OpenFileDialog. I want the program to copy the file that the user selects to my "temp" folder. If the user doesn't select any file, then it doesn't copy any thing. Here is my code:

Dim Temp As String = "Temp"
If Not Form6.OpenFileDialog12.FileName = "" Then
System.IO.File.Copy(Form6.OpenFileDialog12.FileName, Temp & System.IO.Path.GetFileName(Form6.OpenFileDialog12.FileName))
End If

But it doesn't copy any of my files over that are loaded in the OpenFileDialog.

Copy Folder From %appdata% To A New Folder
I'm trying to write a small script that will copy a folder (named .minecraft) to a new folder (doesn't exist, but I want to create a new folder called .minecraft_backups). The current code I have is:

My.Computer.FileSystem.CopyDirectory("%appdata%/.minecraft", "%appdata%/.minecraft_backups", True)

I get an error saying: Could not find directory '%appdata%/.minecraft'. I'm guessing it's because of the %appdata% shortcut. Is there any workaround to do this? The reason for this is because obviously if I don't enter %appdata% and enter the full route to the directory I need to enter the users username for the computer.
