Copying selected file to specified directory

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone


I have been using Alfred for more than a year now (Powerpack User), I've learned how to create very basic work flows to run repetitive terminal commands I use however I would like to now do something a little more advanced and was hoping you guys can help me.


I usually download videos from my Mac and copy them to a video folder in my NAS, the NAS can be seen/connected to via the Shared computers/drive section in Finder. What I would like to do is be able to invoke the 'selected file' action and have a menu item that will copy that file(s) to my movie folder in my NAS.


I think we will need to use AppleScript to do this as I would like to be able to see the progress of the file transfer (as they are quite large files).


Here is what I would like to do:


- Connect to NAS on afp://

- Mount /video folder (if not already mounted)

- Copy selected file(s) to this folder

- Send NC/Growl Notification to say x file(s) have been copied.
