I was initially trying to create something where when I drop a file into a folder, it would automatically make a copy into another folder WITH the name of the folder and subfolders it's in if it doesn't already exist in the folder it's copying to, and if it does exist, then go into the corresponding folder/subfolders. Essentially I only want NEW data/files to be copied (hence when a new file is dropped into a folder, it just copies into corresponding folder(s). But I didn't know how to do that or if it was even possible with Automator, SO, I created a workflow where you can select a folder or files and tell it to make copies to another Folder,.. the problem is that if the files have the same name, it just doesn't get copied. I need for it to tell me when that occurs so I can change the name. SO,.. wasted my time, ha ha...
