    I run a powershell script to copy a directory with all subdirectories to a directory with today's date of name to 10 server and get the two errors below! how can i fix it ?

     $ServerList = Get-Content 'C:\Users\test\Powershellskript\testservrar.txt'
         ForEach ($Server in $ServerList)
         {
         $source = "\\$Server\C$\Java\testIX"
         $distanation = "\\$Server\C$\Backup"
         $today = (Get-Date).ToString('YY-MM-DD')
        $location = New-Item -Path $distanation -Type Directory -Name $today
        Copy-Item $source -Destination $location -recurse
         }
