I copy data files as a backup on a regular basis - I assume you do mean that and not the program files. I have a table dd-files containing the name and locations of all the files. First, close data all, then use dd-files and scan it copying to back up. The close dd-files and copy that. Then reopen all files.
If you want to copy program files, as I also do during the build of a new application, then I use a separate application which does not load the files to be copied so the problem you face does not arise.

For some reason I never came across this problem before. I created Exe that backs up files in my working folders. Even though I run exe file, it cannot copy files that are part of my exe. For example I have a form that is called CopyExe.scx. My exe cannot copy files CopyExe.scx and CopyExe.sct. The same problem I have with my classes that I am using inside of the form. Does anyone know what can be the problem and how to overcome it?
Thanks in advance.
That's how VFP works. When you open a file, no matter what path you specify, if a file with the same name and extension is included in the .exe or .app VFP opens the one in the .exe or .app.
I don't know any way around this using VFP commands. You probably have to use Windows Explorer to access the files.
