dosCopyFolder(string SourceFolderName, string TargetFolderName)

Copies the specified source folder to the specified target folder location. If the target folder does not exist, it is created. If the target folder already exists, the function will not delete it. Instead, it will add the new files to the target folder and only replace files with the same pathname that exist on both the source and target folders, even if they are marked as read only. 

Parameters :

SourceFolderName : A string specifying the drive, location and name of the folder to copy using a pathname. For example, "C:\Docs\Source.txt" on Windows or "My Mac:Docs:Source" on MacOS. On Windows, all folders in the pathname may be specified by their Windows name or MS-DOS name.
TargetFolderName : A string specifying the drive, location and name to copy the source folder to using a pathname. For example, "C:\Docs" on Windows or "My Mac:Docs:Target" on MacOS. This parameter is case insensitive. On Windows, all folders in the pathname may be specified by their Windows name or MS-DOS name.

Return Value : An integer indicating whether the method was successful or not. If 1 is returned, the method was successful. If 0 is returned, the method was not successful in which case dosGetLastError() should be called to determine the cause of the error. 

Possible Returned Error Codes via dosGetLastError() :
10013 : Invalid drive. 
10015 : Source folder does not exist. 
10020 : Drive is write disabled. The source or destination drive is write disabled. 
10034 : Attempting to copy folder to its subfolder.
