I correct myself to remove an useless line :

    set myVolume to "/Volumes/George"
       try
               do shell script "ls " & myVolume
        -- check if the volume /Volumes/George exists. If the volume
doesn't exists an error occurs
               -- set myVolume to myVolume -- useless here ;)
       on error
               set myVolume to myVolume & "-1"
-- if the try statement failed then the volume must be /Volumes/George-1
       end try

       set myDocument to myVolume & "Textfile.txt"
