Good morning all! Long time hazel user, but i use it in the most SIMPLE way possible...Today im looking for a trickier ask

How can I get hazel to copy a folder (and contents), only if a folder of the same name exists at the destination.

e.g.: Source Folder has 5 subfolders. The destination has 4 of those subfolders of the same name, without content. How do I get it to copy the content of those 4 subfolders without including the content of the fifth that is not there.

Your help is much appreciated!

You might be able to do this if source and destination are close together (like sibling folders). Otherwise, not doable with built-in conditions. You'll need to use a script in that case.
