Script to copy new Files and create Folder

Script to copy new Files and create Folder


I would like if there is a new file in a directory or subdirectory that File copied and the folders are created at the destination if they do not exist.

My actual Code is:

CODE -->

$Quellverzeichnis = "\\Server1\xxx\yyy\zzz"
$Zielverzeichnis = "\\Server2\aaa\bbb\ccc"

$FileSystemWatcher = New-Object System.IO.FileSystemWatcher
$FileSystemWatcher.Path = $Quellverzeichnis
$FileSystemWatcher.Filter = "*.*"
$FileSystemWatcher.IncludeSubdirectories = $true
$FileSystemWatcher.EnableRaisingEvents = $true

$OnCreated = Register-ObjectEvent -InputObject $FileSystemWatcher -EventName Created -Action {
    $NeueDatei = $Event.SourceEventArgs.FullPath
    $ZielDatei = Join-Path $Zielverzeichnis (Get-Item $NeueDatei).FullName.Substring($Quellverzeichnis.Length + 1)

    $ZielVerzeichnisExistiert = Test-Path $ZielDatei -PathType Container
    if (-not $ZielVerzeichnisExistiert) {
        New-Item -Path $ZielDatei -ItemType Directory -Force

    Copy-Item -Path $NeueDatei -Destination $ZielDatei -Force

    Write-Host "Datei kopiert: $NeueDatei -> $ZielDatei"

Write-Host "Überwachung gestartet. Drücke 'Ctrl+C' zum Beenden."

try {
    while ($true) {
        Wait-Event -Timeout 1
} finally {
    Unregister-Event -SourceIdentifier $OnCreated.Name

This works so far, except for the fact that it also creates a folder in the target directory with the file name to be copied.
How do I change that so that he doesn't create this folder?

Many Thanks
