I've been trying to copy an archive volume from one network share to another. Because most of these files are Mac files, I am using Mac Terminal to do so. I've tried every combination of
cp, rsync, and ditto that I could come up with.
The problem lies in the fact that many of these files have a similar name and every once in a while I'll come across one that has a tilde character in the file name. Depending on what variation of
cp or rsync command I use, when it comes across this it either fails, stating that file already exists, or, skips the file with the tilde all together and continues on with the process.
For example: "28910 BP Umba Show.SIT" is treated as identical to "28910B~1.SIT" and therefore will not copy to the new archive location.
Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
