I want to use 'Copy Different Files' from DisK A to Disk B
I want the Source to be the contents of a specified single folder 'S' on Disk A
I want the Destination to be a specified single folder 'D' on Disk B

Nothing other than the contents of folder 'S' needs to be evaluated or copied.
All copied filed need to end up in folder 'D'
No need to make Disk B bootable.

Please describe the script that will accomplish this as I have not been able to develop it myself.

Many thanks,

Philip

We don't copy from folder to folder, Philip. We only copy from volume to volume.

Okay, but I believe we can Exclude from a Copy all files except those in a specified folder. Will the following work to achieve that?:

Included Scripts:
‘Exclude all files.dset’

Script Commands:
‘copy’ ‘…/folder ‘S’

Is there a way to copy just the files and not the directory structure from the Source volume?

Many thanks,

Philip

Yes, you can certainly exclude files just like that. But the result is a set of files on a volume, and it copies volume to volume, including the directories the file(s) are in.
