You could do this simply with a batch file rather than VB Script.  Have a look at the "FOR" command at the Microsoft reference link <http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/batch.mspx?mfr=true

I have specific reasons why I need a VBScript. I already know how to do it with a batch file.

Try the following
on error resume next
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
objStartFolder = "O:\Users\Homedirs\"

Set objparent = objFSO.GetFolder(objStartFolder)

For Each Subfolder In objparent.SubFolders
    WScript.Echo Subfolder.Path
    Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(Subfolder.Path)
    If InStr(LCase(objfolder.Name),"psr")>0 Then
        psrfolder=Replace("o:\users\homedirs\psrfolder\notes\data","psrfolder",LCase(objfolder.Name))
        renfolder=Replace(psrfolder,"\data","\mgrdata")
        'WScript.Echo psrfolder & renfolder
        If objfso.FolderExists(psrfolder) Then
            objfso.CopyFolder psrfolder , renfolder
            WScript.Echo "Copied - " & psrfolder & " to - " & renfolder
        End If
    End If
Next
