Help needed for unix work around from copying files between folders in Lion

  • Posted: 27 September 2011 01:28 PM

    In Snow Leopard I could copy a large number of files in one folder into another and have the choice of only copying ones that were missing or newer. 

    This option has completely disappeared in Lion.  From the the talk in the Apple forums I am not the only one that misses this.  It is a huge time saver when copying in remote files as only the that are missing or different are copied.

    Can someone give me the format I would use to do this from the command line?  I tried cp and mv but I do not have the correct syntax.  I was trying it with -u but I probably did not have the full path correct

    THanks David
