SCP ??? where did the file go ??????


Hi All,


((Since this posting I have got it licked thx ))


I recently tried to copy files from my machine to a friends machine. Everything looked fine, it appeared to copy fine. Trouble is I cant seem to find the files at the other end ???? here is the command I used:

root@neptune0615]# scp -rC /home/trip/CVs//CPVv

**.*.***.***: ~/home/neptune0615

root@**.*.***.***'s password:***************

CPVv 100% |******************************************************************************************| 15778 00:02

Have I done this wrong

thanks in advance

Have you checked the home directory for root?
You could always use locate or find on a known file...
