I want to copy the entire root file system from a target to a specific folder in the host. When I try this, I just get a README.txt file in the desired location. When I open the file, it says "Download and extract the sample filesystem to this directory."
Does anyone know the problem? Below is the input and output of the terminal.
rish@myComp:~$ scp -r comp@<IP Address>:/*.* /desired/location comp@<IP Address>'s password: README.txt 100% 62 107.0KB/s 00:00
