So I was trying to copy one folder to another location and kept getting this error:
cp: omitting directory
and it would not copy the directory over. This is the command I was running
cp FOLDER /root/DRIVE
I am fairly new to Linux so I did not know what I was doing wrong. After looking at the man page and some searching I found that I needed to put a -r after CP. Here is the syntax:
cp -r FOLDER /root/DRIVE
the -r is copying the folder recursively.
