tell application "Terminal"
do script "rsync -rlpt --progress --stats ~username/ /volumes/macdrive/username" in front window
I still have a problem, though. I'd like it to logout of terminal and close the window when it's done. If I put a dialog so it doesn't close until I've clicked okay the dialog times out and the script stops running. So I have to look for a way to make the dialog wait indefinitely.
