I apologize that this seems like such a dumb question, but I can't afford to screw it up.
I have a bunch of folders like so:
Unfortunately, they aren't uniformly named like that, and there are hundreds of oops folders.
I intended to copy all the oops folders into bar. Is there an easy way to move all the oops folders into bar that won't result in some kind of recursive move problem?
It took several hours to copy the files. I'm hoping that the move will be much faster.
This is on a redhat linux server by the way. I only have ssh access.
I think if I do
cd foo mv * bar
there will be a problem.
