It does exactly what I want it to!

It is a little counterintuitive in that you have to highlight the items you want backuped after you've added them, but it only took me a few moments of playing around with to that figure out. Diddo with the options for creating the folder and selecting it's location.

It does what it says it does, if you can't get this application to work (took 5 clicks), then you have some serious problems.

Works like a charm.
Previous comment, RTFM
"Important: You must first select the files in the list you want copied (see below)-then press "backup", otherwise you will get an empty backup folder! To copy files, they must have permission for read/write. This can be an issue with system files, preferences etc. The destination disk also must have read/write permission and be Mac OS extended format. Some other disk formats will not work with this kind of script. You can change permissions globally, in the Accounts pane in System preferences, if you are the administrator on your computer, or you can change individual file permissions by control clicking "get info" for individual files."

Doesn't work. Just makes a folder called 'my backup'.

Though the applescript "duplicate" command can be a bit finicky, it works well on most systems. I havn't seen or heard of this "empty folder"behaviour before. Most of the problems with copying files are because the media is not Mac OS extended format, or the user doesn't have permission for read/writng certain files so the script bales out. otherwise, I am trying to make this simple backup solution more stable in future releases.
