How to Copy the entire folder contents (including sub-folders and their contents) to another folder using PUTTY? Is there any command for that?
cp command for this
for example :
cp -r /home/hope/files/* /home/hope/backup
xcopy c:\temp3 /e
If you have access to a bash shell you can use the following command:
cp -r /home/dir_to_copy . - Copies
dir_to_copy and all its contents (sub-directories and files) to the current directory.
cp -r dir_to_copy/* bak_dir - Copies just the contents (sub-directories and files) of
dir_to_copy to a backup directory named
dir_to_copy is not copied.
I hope this helps.
What you are looking for is pscp. It can be found on the same website as putty : http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ Have fun!
EDIT : I presume that your trying to get the files from one system to another, hence the use of putty.
