I need a little help.  I get an error while running this script:



with timeout of 10 seconds


          tell application "Finder"




                    duplicate file "DO NOT REMOVE.rtf" of folder "File Backups" of disk "Macintosh HD" to folder "DO NOT REMOVE" of disk "Time Machine" replacing yes


          end tell


end timeout



the error message I receive is:



error "Finder got an error: Can’t set folder \"DO NOT REMOVE\" of disk \"Time Machine\" to disk \"Time Machine\"." number -10006 from folder "DO NOT REMOVE" of disk "Time Machine"



I cannot find any information on this error type.  I'm running Mac OS X 10.8.2.

    That error indicates that folder "DO NOT REMOVE" of disk "Time Machine" does not exist.  Have you checked that path is already present and that your user can write to it?
