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:

Use the static method <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/c6cfw35a(v=VS.80).aspx">Copy(String, String)</a>[<a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/c6cfw35a(v=VS.80).aspx" target="_blank" title="New Window">^</a>] or <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/9706cfs5(v=VS.80).aspx">Copy(String, String, bool)</a>[<a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/9706cfs5(v=VS.80).aspx" target="_blank" title="New Window">^</a>] of class <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/library/system.io.file(v=VS.80).aspx">File</a>[<a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/library/system.io.file(v=VS.80).aspx" target="_blank" title="New Window">^</a>] from the <a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.io(v=VS.80).aspx">System.IO namespace</a>[<a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.io(v=VS.80).aspx" target="_blank" title="New Window">^</a>].
