The problem is the FileCopy function. It doesn't return until the copying is done so when it's time to update the progress bar the progress is already complete.

To solve it you can either:

a ) Check out these search results

b ) Read and write the file manually one part at time with the FileRead()/FileWrite functions and update the progress bar between the loop iterations.
