1. Name your thread titles descriptive of what it is you need or are talking about. That helps others when searching, and people that would have no clue on how to help, not to waste their time.

2. Use AutoIt code tags when posting code (forum ettiquette).

3. You need to check out what _ArrayMax() really does.

4. You can't surround a variable with quotes (SciTe should have thrown that error FileCopy("M:\Backup\" & "$Filelist[$max]"

5. To return the last element in the array ... try this:

#include <file.au3>
$FileList = _FileListToArray("M:\BackUp", "*.*", 1)
FileCopy("M:\Backup\" & $FileList[UBound($FileList) - 1], "C:\Test\" & $FileList[UBound($FileList) - 1], 9)

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.
