Subject Re: copy task not copying
Date Thu, 18 Dec 2003 17:46:53 GMT
This is also not working, sorry I should have said it earlier. My code 
does include overwrite="ture" even through my example doesn't

Are there any cases of past issues with copy and not copying 
subdirectories if the top parent directory's lastModified date hadn't 
changed?

thanks again,
Mark
