So if I run this script I get the error “Finder got an error: Can’t make file “Macintosh HD:Users:scott:Dropbox:Downloads” into type folder.”
set theSource to POSIX file "/Users/scott/Desktop/test.m4a" set theDestination to POSIX file "/Users/scott/Downloads" tell application "Finder" duplicate theSource to theDestination end tell
I know what the problem is its because /Users/scott/Downloads is a soft link (created from the command line with the “ln -s” command) to /Users/scott/Dropbox/Downloads.
What’s weird is the finder error message has the correct path pointed into my dropbox folder. Is there a way around this other than having to specify the path to the original item and not use the alias?
Thanks in advance, Scott
