I want to copy all files (included sub-folders) from
$HOME directory to
Desktop in bash. And as you know the
Desktop is in
$HOME. So, when I copy all files I get the message like this:
cannot copy a directory, '/home/adminuser/Desktop', into itself, '/home/adminuser/Desktop/'.
And I don't know the suitable code to exclude the folder
I use this:
cp -r $HOME/* ~/Desktop/
Does anybody know a code for it or can anybody help me?
