I am working on this PS script to copy some data from a share drive to a folder in the user's profile.  Prior to the copy, I need to make sure the "install-finished.txt" file is not in the desktop folder first.  

Please advise if the below will work.  Thanks very much!

if (-not (Test-Path $env:USERPROFILE\desktop\install-finished.txt)) {
copy-item -path "\\server1\share1" - destination ${env:UserProfile}\AppData\Local\software1 -recurse -force
