Hey all, I'm assuming this is a simple question, but I can't find any good documentation online on it.... I'm trying to write an applescript to automatically back up a copy of my notes for classes to a flash drive whenever its plugged in. The problem is that the directory path for the source file has a space in it, and Applescript is bouncing back an error "Expected " but found unknown token." Here's the relevant portion of the script: ignoring application responses tell application "Terminal" activate do shell script "rsync -a /Users/Sitryd/Documents/07-08 2L/\ Constitutional\ Law/Constitutional\ Law\ Notes.doc /Volumes/Backups/" end tell end ignoring It's hiccuping right after the \ in the "07-08 2L/\" sequence (i.e. at the first space), but I can't figure out how to have applescript just pass that sequence normally to terminal. Thanks!
