Single folder backup

I would like to make a script that will back up only one folder.

I want to back up the "Pictures" folder on external drive "Pineapple" to the "Image Ready" folder on external drive "Kiwi". I want to leave the iPhoto Library alone. Would this be how it works?:

In the "Included scripts" section I choose the script "user files.dset"
In the "Script Commands" section I enter the following:
ignore *
ignore .*
copy Pictures
ignore Pictures/iPhoto Library

Thanks!

You can't copy to a specific folder that way, Sam3: we always copy a drive as a volume... even if you select only a single folder to copy, that's one folder, rooted in a specific location, on a source volume that's copied to a destination volume, with the copy itself controlled by the "During copy" options.
