python error in my execution of a script

Hi hoping someone can help as i need help debugging my python script...I do not think I am referencing my file location correctly...

see screenshot attached to see the error

see instructions for script below that were given to me

I have taken the liberty of renaming the input directory so that it doesn’t have embedded spaces; while not strictly necessary, this will reduce problems with command line execution. Command lines can easily mis-understand file names with spaces as multiple inputs, rather than just one. Also, i you need to specify a non-local path (i.e. not in the same directory as the programs), please use forward slashes (/) not the old Windows backwards slashes (\).
