Macintosh HD. That means that any files “outside” the set of files
selected by the copy script will be erased.
I think it is very clear here, but this is on *page 42* of the user guide. I did skim the guide, but I obviously missed this. I think the explicit wording like above "That means that any files “outside” the set of files
selected by the copy script will be erased." could be useful in the prompt that comes up when you start copying.

As an update, I have been further chatting with the developer and I feel this issue is resolved. As stated by SDSL the information is there, but it was not apparent to *me*. When doing things like backing up data you should always be careful. I feel confident that Dave is making every effort to ensure this is never repeated. Thanks Dave for your support.
