I’m trying to copy a folder off a hard drive to a folder on my desktop. The folder im trying to copy included subfolders with multiple files in each. I thought what was below was right, but I get the following error:
(Keep in mind myHD is a predefined variable)
tell application "Finder" set sourceFolder to ("Volumes:" & myHD & ":my_stuff:Music:") set destinationFolder to ((path to desktop folder as text) & "My Music:") duplicate entire contents of folder sourceFolder to folder destinationFolder replacing yes end tell
Finder got an error: Can’t set folder “Macintosh HD:Users:JJ:Desktop:Ipod Music:” to entire contents of folder “Volumes:myHD:my_stuff:Music:”.
