I am working on a PS script to copy filders, subfolders, and files from an UNC shared to a folder in a user profile only if the folder does not exist.  

May someone check the below script and advise if it will work?

$checkpath = "%userprofile%\Appdata\Roaming\app1"

if (-not (Test-Path -LiteralPath $checkpath)) {

copy-item -path \\server1\shared\apps1\*.* -destination %userprofile%\Appdata\Roaming\apps1
