I can copy files with "sysFile -copy". But I can't copy folders with this command. Any idea ?

Thank you

use the "system" command like so:

system "[doscommandforcopy] myFolder"

I really forgot the DOS command, so sorry.....

system "xcopy /d C:\\test1 c:\\test2";

this will copy the files in C:\temp1 to c:\temp2
u can use mel to construct a string to do this for u..
