refine the find command


Hi,

Ive tried to rsync from one ~/home on hdd a, to ~/home hdd b, using a live cd, but it returns a load of; eg:

rsync: opendir "/media/a2ab9331-effd-4855-8e0a-6c7f1a9d63b5/home/nnjond/.Skype" failed: Permission denied (13)

So i think i should fresh install and it would be convenient if i knew the refined commands to locate the saved files in /home hdd a, since 02_06_10 (not including all the hidden or deleted files), and then copy to a memory stick using the nautilus gui.

Can you help me please?

What's the exact command line you used?

Why use a Live CD? You could run rsync as root and have it preserve permissions?
