I am in the process of standing up my NAS server. I am trying to copy off all
my users Maildir directories to the NAS box as a file backup.
So, my account on the box, has 93MB of data in the Maildir folder, in 160
subfolders and includes 3217 files. (reported by fish)
What I have managed to copy over is 7.3MB of data, in 160 folders, and 553
files were copied over.
I used the following command:
cp -r /home/jhart/Maildir/* /mntpoint/email/home/jhart/Maildir
I figured this would recursively copy all files under the Maildir dir to the
Why didn't all files get copied over? What did I do wrong? What would work?
