I have two filesystems that are similar in hierarchy only named differently. The structure looks as follows:
The unique name in an 8.3 format where the last 3 of the eight is the last three letters of the hierarchy.
My only point here is that the files are absolutely unique.
I want to move all of the files from /mount2 to mount1 and maintain both the timestamp of the file, hence the move vs copy, and also have them land in the correct directory if it exists, and create the directory if it doesn't exist. When I tried a mv command, for those directories that existed, the system simply went down another level until it didn't find a directory with that name and began creating them at that level. This is not what I want. I simply want to move the files and directories to the filesystem and maintain only three levels of ALPHA character directories under the BIG MED and SML directory.
I hope that this is enough info, if not, ask away.
Thanx in advance
