newbie question: copying files over network

i’m trying to create a droplet that copies the dropped files to a directory on a networked computer.

in this case, both the computers have start up drives named “Macintosh HD”. so when i mount the drive, i wind up with two instances of “Macintosh HD” on my desktop. is there a way to distinguish between the two?

here is my code so far:

on open (bufiles)
tell application “Finder”
mount volume “Macintosh HD” on server “PT EDIT1”
duplicate (every item in bufiles) to folder “Macintosh HD:tempbu”
end tell
end open

the 5th line seems to be giving me problems.

additionally, i was unable to figure out how to make this work with “copy” as opposed to “duplicate”. is there a way for this to be written with the copy command. and is there any advantage to using one over the other?

thanks in advance. :slight_smile:
