I am trying to find an applescript that I can set as a folder action that will move everything copied to the original folder into a new destination folder...

I am hoping that I can use this to have iTunes copy movies into the itunes movie folder when I add them, then have the folder action automatically move them to a different folder. I hate having my movies folder lost in with my albums. (Plus I like to back them up separately)

:confused:

I am using:

on adding folder items to this_folder after receiving added_items
try
tell application "Finder"
move added_items to "Media HD:Movies"
end tell
end try
end adding folder items to

Which is working fine for moving files that I copy to the folder but it doesn't work for files that iTunes copies there....
