Here’s a step-by-step guide to moving files around your home, office, or server drive.
You want to move files around your computer? You have to use a utility. One that’s pretty cheap is rsync, which is a utility that lets you move files between your local machine and a remote machine. You can use rsync to move files to/from a remote server, or you can use it to move files between local computer and a remote computer, and vice-versa (which we’ll talk about in a bit).
If you’re not careful, you may get yourself into trouble. If you accidentally delete a file that you didn’t mean to delete, it will delete itself, so you’ll need to rsync a backup copy. If you’re moving files between two computers, you also need to make backups of those files before you move them.
This is just a minor point but I think it deserves an explanation. If you have a drive with several sets of files (such as a laptop and a few other hard drives), you can move those files to other drives using the command line. I do this all the time because I use the same drive for all my files, and it works great. If you have several drives, you can also move files between these drives using the command line.
The backup file I use is actually a simple rename command. I create a backup destination folder on the drive that I want to move my files to, then I use a command to rename the original (current) files to the destination name, then I delete the backup folder. I then use a simple command to make a copy of the original files on the destination drive, and then I move the files to the actual destination drive.
This trick may be useful for people who have lots of files on their computers that they don’t want to move. It’s easy to accidentally move files from one folder to another, especially if you’re in a hurry and don’t know what you’re doing.
I like this trick a lot, but I think it gets a little complicated. I think there are two main problems: 1) if the destination drive is the same drive as your current copy of files, it really messes up your current copy of files. It’s a common mistake to move files from one folder to another that messes up your files in the destination folder.
The solution is to use the same destination drive as your current copy of files. To do this, find a folder that is the same size as your current copy of files. Right-click on the folder, select “properties,” and change the folder to the new destination drive.
It sounds complicated but you can make this a lot easier to understand by using the Move To command. The command is part of the Finder and Finder has a function that allows you to move files to a different location. Go to the Finder’s menu bar, select the Go command, and then select Move To from the pop-up menu. Now you can move files to a different location.
It’s a little complicated, but the point is, you can easily move files on your drive to a different location. You can’t move files to the same folder twice, though.
