I have several different machines that use Flash drives for logs  no network connection.   Each month I want to move the logs to a network drive.

I would like the vbs to run on the flash drive when selected.
The Flash drive is typically the f: drive but that could change if another flash drive is in the user’s desktop.

The Flash drive has two directories on it
PathosDelta_093904020
PathosDelta_094305024

I want to move all Subdirectories to
L:\Pathos\PathosDelta_093904020-Pathos_1
L:\Pathos\PathosDelta_094305024-PATHOS_2

PathosDelta_093904020  all subdirectories and files moved to   L:\Pathos\PathosDelta_093904020-Pathos_1

PathosDelta_094305024  all subdirectories and files moved to    L:\Pathos\PathosDelta_094305024-PATHOS_2

If a directory and or file exist in the move to directory it should be overwritten.  


I have tried and now I am frustrated…
