10.6: Time Machine using multiple backup disks
Authored by: TonkaTuff on Jan 25, '11 04:03:37PM

I am new to AppleScript, and to Mac OS, (though I have used older UNIX systems, like SunOS and Ultrix, and earlier versions of Linux), and I am trying to understand this script. It doesn't seem to work for me, and my brief inspection of the code makes me think it should be using the move command, but maybe I'm missing what the set name is actually doing? Was something intentionally left out so it doesn't work?

FWIW, I used the list disks command to get my disks, and similar to get the correct path specification. I wasn't sure if I needed to do something to escalate permissions so my regular user login could modify thing in that part of the filesystem?

Also, I added a say command to each section, so I know it is hitting the right section for (in my case) "Work" verses "Home". I am hoping someone, (other than those interested in flaming nubes), can tell me what might be missing, or what I may be misunderstanding?
