Ok this check first the read-only flag and sends and exception if the
destinationFileName is has it.

But... you need to also check for the read-only flag of the
destinationFileName before copying. Especially important for Linux systems
where IsReadOnly isn't the only parameter to check

What are the others? e.g. that the destinationFileName is in a path where a
user don't have permission to write?

Quote from MSDN "This method will succeed in Windows 2000 environments if
the destFileName is read-only and will not raise an exception. Use the
IsReadOnly property to check if the destination file is read-only before
attempting to replace it."
You should implement that.

Sure I will.

Thanks for your feedback.
