I keep getting

ERROR 2 (0x00000002) Accessing Source Directory
The system cannot find the file specified.

For each directory/library. Is there something wrong with my script? Any information would be most appreciated. Thanks

There is no %LIBRARIES% variable. Use %USERPROFILE% instead, which will point you to c:\Users\<username>. You can safely use english names (like Music) regardless of the locale.


Each "Library" is in fact a virtual folder that displays content gathered from (possibly) many different folders. By default, each user library has two folders attached:

  • %USERPROFILE%\<library_type>
  • %PUBLIC%\<library_type>

User may add any number of additional folders via library properties panel.

Take a note, that the solution I provided (using %USERPROFILE%) will not reach any additional folders you may have added to your libraries. On a default setup, though, it will work well.
