the error is probably due to the unescaped backslash in teh destination
string - "\a"
>>> dst = 'v:\data\all\*.mdb'
dst = r'v:\data\all\*.mdb'
to avoid that problem, and learn how to use raw string literals. I am
also not sure that you can use wildcards n the destination like you can
on the Windows command-line copy command, so you may just need to give
the path to the destination directory.
