Full Version: Cp Command
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
I want to copy my home folder to a usb key so i can reinstall my os (fedora 3). A colleague at work has helped me with this before but I can't remember the parameters of the cp command that he told me to type. I think there were 4 in total and the only 1 i can remember is R to copy subdirectories. Can anybody give me any ideas on the other 3.

Thanks in advance,


Since this is kinda like my backup thingie

this should work ok for you

cp -au /home/robert /backup

this will create /backup/robert with directories under it...

Robert B

man cp

try it just once
