Copy & rename entire folder structure - Coldfusion - Advanced Techniques

I was wondering how to copy an entire folder structure with sub folders and files, then rename the main folder. I have used the cfdirectory to 'rename' the directory, but that's only after I manually coppied or FTP the folder structure. I want to use cf to both copy the folder structure and then rename it. Ex. original folders ---> [Family][mom][dad] (1 main folder with 2 sub folders) copy/rename to ---> [Johnsons][mom][dad] (still 1 main folder with 2 sub folders) Man, I really hope that made some sense....

    structure. I want to use cf to both copy the folder structure and then rename

    Use cfExecute to execute DOS-commands:

    <cfexecute name="cmd.exe"
    arguments="/c ren Family Johsons "
    timeOut="15"></cfexecute>

    ren Family Johsons
    is the actually executed command, "ren" is the command, "Family" the old name,
    "Johnsons" the new name.
    You'll have to use absolute paths instead of just "Family" or "Johnsons"

    Hope it helps

    Is there a way to do the copy of that folder structure before I rename it? Are there some similar DOS commands to copy a structure?
