I've mad a script that copies all my user files. The most important being the Documents and Pictures.

However, since I make a lot of photo's every year, I've got the previous years on a dedicated external harddisk. I want SuperDuper! to copy them too.

Even though while the settings in the script are right, they don't show up in the final copy.

Is this a common problem? And how do I solve it?

Ah I found out why it wasn't working.

I had my internal drive selected to copy from, while I should select the photo-drive to copy from.

However, is there any way to copy from two different harddrives with the same script? Since I want to my userfiles from my internal drive and my (archived) photo files from my external harddrive?

There is not: the script selects the files from the volume you select in the source pop-up.

That's too bad. A bit strange that it's possible to select different volumes in one script btw!

Would a symlink to the external harddrive, placed in my user folder, be a possible workaround?

No, symlinks are copied as links.
