can you give an example of those commands, I tried the key commands

C-c C-a which opens the dispatcher
s to set a directory
then C-c C-a z to sync, but it did not do anything but add a :DIR:
property. it didn't move or copy files anywhere.

Here is the code I am currently using that basically does what I want.

(defun scimax-org-attach-attach-directory-cp (dir)
  "Copy DIR as an attachment to the current heading."
  (interactive "DDir: ")
  (copy-directory dir (file-name-as-directory (org-attach-dir 'get-create)))
  (org-entry-put (point) "ATTACHMENTS"
 (org-entry-get (point) "ATTACHMENTS")
 (format " [[attachment:%s]]" (car (last (f-split dir)))))))

(defun scimax-org-attach-attach-directory-mv (dir)
  "Move DIR as an attachment to the current heading."
  (interactive "DDir: ")
  (scimax-org-attach-attach-directory-cp dir)
  (delete-directory dir t t))
