I am trying to copy a directory from one spot on my server to another spot on my server. I have copied the directory successfully, but suppose I delete a file in the "parent" directory. I want the "child" directory to be exactly the same as the parent directory. I have thought of one way I could do it: I could simply delete the child directory and then copy the new directory all over again and that would work. Here is the problem: I could be hosting upwards of 300,000 files at roughly 30MB each. I don't want to delete and copy all of that. It would take FOREVER! So what are some suggestions that you guys (or girls) may have? It is a large project so I can't afford to do it sloppy.
