At a guess, do the bound values magically update when the loop finishes?

If you're calling DoSomethingWithFiles on the UI thread, you're blocking the UI thread until the method returns. No property updates will have any effect on the UI.

Either move the method to a background thread, or make it async and yield on every loop iteration:
public void DoSomethingWithFiles()
{
    _ = DoSomethingWithFilesAsync();
}

private async Task DoSomethingWithFilesAsync()
{
    string[] files = Directory.EnumerateFiles(@"c:\mypath", "*.*");
    foreach (string file in files)
    {
        this.CurrentFile = file;
        this.FileCount += 1;
        await Task.Yield();
    }
}
