PParks- thanks for your response. I copied all the docs from My Documents on my PC into the f:\My Documents folder. I then ran the batch file (as a test) which is what deleted everything on the external drive in f:\My Documents.
Was the folder structure the same. If there was 1 extra subfolder on the destination, not on the source, it would have wiped it out.
