issue 1: does the destination folder exist?
you may have to delete it using the revDeleteFolder command, esp if there
are any files inside.  Just delete folder will not work.

issue 2:
try using 
if there is a folder sorce then answer "found it" & cr & sorce
if there is a folder dest then answer "found it" & cr & dest

to double check the syntax you are using.
