Hi!

Can anybody tell me in Ant how to copy file from one drive to another? I tried this in my build file but does not work:


<path id="source.java.dir"><pathelement location="C:\project\src"/></path>
<path id="backup.java.dir"><pathelement location="D:\project\backup"/> </path>
<copy todir="${backup.java.dir}">
<fileset dir="${source.java.dir}" ><include name="*.java"/></fileset>
</copy>

The following example seems to work for me.
