Hi. Sometimes when I use cp -r to copy some directories, not all the files are copied. It's repeatable, but doesn't happen with xcopy.
cp -r * \bi\copytemp
I'm using cp 3.16 in cmd.exe on Windows XP Pro SP2.
The above commands don't copy the folder \bi\project\part\workspace\m\source\m\server\packages\MPT\i\application, but everything else is copied. All the files I'm copying have the same permissions and attributes (not system or hidden or readonly or archive). If I change the "part" folder name, the problem doesn't happen. If I change the name back to "part", it happens again. The destination directory doesn't affect it. This works fine: 'cp -r m \bi\copytemp'.
Does anyone know a reason why this is happening? How can I troubleshoot further to determine the cause?
