Hi Golden,

Thanks for your feedback again.

I would have thought it more logical if it was the My Documents / Documents issue that all copied files would result in errors, but the vast majority of the files backup fine.

It looks like this will remain unresolved and I'll have to write an alternative backup script method.

Thanks again for your patience.
