Simplify the code.
return 1 + (datetime.now().day -1) // 7 #weeks go from 1 to 5
source = source1()
destination = destination2()
print "copy tree ", source, destination
All that nonsense with curdir was messing up your thinking.
I'm not going to try to debug your destination2() function, but I would
point out that when you use os.path.join(), please let it do the work
for you. It takes any number of arguments, and those arguments should
not have extra slashes or backslashes in them. The leading slashes are
okay for the first node, if you want a unc.
It would have been much easier if you had made source and destination
arguments to the backupall() function. It then might have become clear
that it's simply copytree(), with the extra requirement of deleting
whatever used to be there.
Now if you aren't allowed to delete what was already there, then you
can't use copytree, and need to start over with os.walk().
