Can SilkTest copy a directory structure?

Can SilkTest copy a directory structure?

Using SYS_Execute and the Dos command Xcopy you should be able to copy an entire directory structure from one drive to another

SYS_Execute ("xcopy c:\test d:\test /i /s /e")

would copy a directory and all subdirectories and files from drive C to Drive D. Please note that the command path must conform to Joliet naming conventions e.g. \program files\ must be written as \progra~1\. Failure to do this will lead to an "Incorrect number of parameters" message from xcopy.

SilkTest contains the command SYS_CopyFile but this does not have the functionality to copy a directory structure from one place to another.
