Would anyone know why this would not work ?
I must ensure I always include the Volume name in my solution. This is why I am typing MacIntosh HD in my syntax.
set abcd to "mv -i /Macintosh HD/Users/MyUserName/MPEGfiles/03/IDX00305.MPG /Macintosh HD/Users/MyUserName/MPEGfiles/03/IDX00306.MPG" do shell script abcd
If I use
set abcd to "mv -i /MPEGfiles/03/IDX00305.MPG /MPEGfiles/03/IDX00306.MPG" do shell script abcd
am I sure it always start at the root directory.
I will be executing the same command on an external drive named “GANDALF”, I will try to see if If I use
set abcd to "mv -i /GANDALF/MPEGfiles/03/IDX00305.MPG /GANDALF/MPEGfiles/03/IDX00306.MPG" do shell script abcd
