This question already has an answer here:
I have a folder (let's name it main-folder and it's mounted via smb) that contains lots of files and subfolders. I want to copy half of the contents of main-folder to a local subfolder (let's call it my-folder). My problem is that one folder is common between main-folder and my-folder. And even though I have pressed the option key, I do not get the merge option.
I know I can use rsync and other similar commands which I've done lots of time. EXCEPT I can't use it this time as I am only copying half of the files/folders. Too tedious to write an exception list.
I was hoping for a similar behaviour when dragging files/folders in Windows Explorer.
Any ideas on how to make it work? Thanks a lot
