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?
Just to move them to another location, use the move command - "mv" without quotes.
mv /home/yourname/somefolder /home/yourname/oldstuff
To duplicate, use the copy command - "cp" without quotes.
cp /home/yourname/somefolder /home/yourname/anotherplace.
Change the names to suit your system and naming scheme.
