Is there any way that i can call windows' copy event from a button. like, i add files to a list box and select a destination drive, and when i press the button, it should copy the files. same as it would do if i dragged it(the files) onto the removable disk in windows explorer or selecting the drive in the send to menu.

It can be done with a Shell file operation (SHFileOperation). Check out the link for more info and examples:
C# does Shell, Part 2[^]

Good luck!

Use the static method Copy(String, String)[^] or Copy(String, String, bool)[^] of class File[^] from the System.IO namespace[^].

Cheers!
