I was working on a simple script to sync two directores with each other, this is what I had:

$destination = InputBox("Where would you like to move the files to be 
copied to [what is the destiniation]?", "Destination.", "",)
$source = InputBox("What is the source to be moved to destination", "Source.", "",)
DirCreate ( $destination )
DirCopy ( "$source", "$destination" )

But when I run it, I get a folder called $destination on my desktop with nothing in it. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Matt

This is working for me:

$dest = FileSelectFolder("Choose a destination Folder.", "")
$dest1 = InputBox("Create Folder", "Enter folder name", "", "")
$dest2 = ($dest & "\" & $dest1)

$source = FileSelectFolder("Choose a source Folder.", "")

DirCreate ( $dest2 )
FileCopy($source & "\*.*", $dest2 & "\*.*")

Were ever i lay my script is my home...

Matt, you have your $source and $destination varibles in "". You shouldn't put variables in "". Hope that helps.
