I'm using Ubuntu 14.04, I have a folder and structure I need to copy to a memory stick the folder contains lots of symbolic links. I've tried:
cp -RP ~/name .
Which I execute from the mounted USB stick, whilst a lot of the folders and files are copied there are lots of messages for files that are not copied.
cp: preserving permissions for './path and file': Function not implemented
cp: cannot create symbolic link './path and file': Function not implemented
