I have two drobos. I want to move a folder (called A) from one drobo name (Behemoth) to another drobo (Galactus) using Terminal (Mac). I have tried

ditto ~/Volumes/Behemoth/A /Volumes/Galactus/ 

but it says directory not found? Thank you.

  • If it wasn't just a typo (see my answer), please add the output of ls -l /Volumes to the question.

Assuming the mount points are correct

ditto /Volumes/Behemoth/A /Volumes/Galactus/ 

should work (you had an extra ~ on the source side).

In case you want to move the data (as the text in your question implies)

mv /Volumes/Behemoth/A /Volumes/Galactus/

will work as well (or you just rm -r /Volumes/Behemoth/A after you've successfully copied with ditto).

  • This will copy the directory, not move it.

  • @Milliways Indeed :-) I was more focused on the error message the OP got.
