quick question


I have all these folders in my linux box, i would like to trasnfer all at once to another path location.

I want to trasnfer a folder that has around 4 folders in it and a lot of files.

How do i transfer a folder from one path to another one?
How do i duplicate a folder and transfer it from one path to another one?

John,
Thanks Alot!

Just to move them to another location, use the move command - "mv" without quotes.

Example:
mv /home/yourname/somefolder /home/yourname/oldstuff

To duplicate, use the copy command - "cp" without quotes.

Example:
cp /home/yourname/somefolder /home/yourname/anotherplace.

Change the names to suit your system and naming scheme.

Or you can use a "file manager" .
