Why not use plain old DOS batch files? Something along these lines:


@echo off
set /p drive=Please select drive letter to copy files to:

if not exist %drive%\ (
   echo Drive %drive% does not exist
   exit /b 1
)

xcopy %source%\*.* %drive%\
exit /b 0

try this
Const OverwriteExisting = True
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
strSource = InputBox("enter drive letter or path to copy from. e.g: c:\")
strTarget = InputBox("enter Path To Copy To. e.g: d:\temp")
objFSO.CopyFile strSource & "\*.*" , strTarget , OverwriteExisting
MsgBox "Done"

Open in new window
