    Using Automator to Backup
    Using Automator to Backup:

    I place all my downloads in the default "Downloads" folder and the "Documents" downloaded in the default "Documents" folder. I wish to make a backup of the entire folders in another drive on the same hard disk. How should I use Automator to do that for me? Also, is it possible to sort the files according to their type (e.g. pdf, doc etc) and place them in different folders (e.g. folder named "pdf" to contain all pdf files) using automator?
