trying to write a script that copies files from 1 drive to another

Hello and thanks in advance,

I am trying to write a .vbs script that copies files from one drive to another and matches the folder path exactly. I have bought a scripting book. I am going through the examples and for some reason windows keeps blowing an error @ line 3 of the following code. I understand that just because it says line 3 does not mean the error is in line 3.

Here is the code, can somebody tell me why it keep blowing errors?

folderP = CheckFolders
Set W = WScript.CreateObject
w.Popup folderP
Function CheckFolders(folderPath)

Dim fs, f, n, s
s = ""
n = 0
Set fs = CreateObject
Set f = fs.GetFolder(folderPath)
If f.IsRootFolder then
s = "this is the root level"
 Do Until f.IsRootFolder
  Set f = f.ParentFolder
   n = n + 1
 End If
 'work with folder
s = "Folder is nested " & n & " levels deep"

CheckFolders = s
End Function
