You might have to tweak this a bit, but here is the basic shell.

sRemoveDir = "c:\dir1"
sCopyDir = "\\sharename\dir3"
sDestDir = "c:\dir2"

Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

If oFSO.FolderExists(sRemoveDir) Then
   oFSO.DeleteFolder sRemoveDir
End If

If oFSO.FolderExists(sCopyDir) Then
   oFSO.CopyFolder sCopyDir, sDestDir
End If

Open in new window
