Solved copy to variable username

Specs: Windows 7

I'm trying to create a script which copies data from G:\Apps\Data to C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Local\SomeFolder

This is what i'm trying:

md C:\Users\%UserName%\appdata\local\somefolder\
copy  G:\Apps\Data\*.* C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Local\Somefolder

Somthing is going wrong, the output in DOS says ït cannot find the specified path.

Anyone an idea?
Thanks in advanvce

There is an extra space before the directory in the copy line, this might be it?
Is your UserName a spaced or hypenated name?

Yes, probably those good old spaces. If so try:
md "C:\Users\%UserName%\appdata\local\somefolder\"

copy G:\Apps\Data\*.* "C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Local\Somefolder"

and post content of %username%
