The problem is your second "answer folder" command. What you're ending up
doing here is asking the user for an already-existing folder as the
destination, so revCopyFolder is trying to create a folder that already

You can do one of two things:

1) Use "ask file" instead of "answer folder" for the destination, allowing
the user to name the folder.

2) If you don't want to let the user name the copy - just make a duplicate
with the same name - then leave the second "answer folder" command as is,
and append the name of the source folder to the end of the variable "DF".
