```rather than moving the folders manually through such an ardus process, just
wondering, why don't you try out the f
file & folder backup utility freely available at:
www.jfwlite.com/programs <http://www.jfwlite.com/programs>
by the name of e-backup.
even the jaws scripts for the same are also available.
do let me know how it works for you.
hope to hear.
bye,
