Good evening,
Im a newbie with linux, and Ive figured out I can do "CP -R" to copy all files and directories, which works great, but if Im doing several Gb, I have no idea how far its got, or if its failed.

Is it possible to add a parameter in to show me which files its copying/copied, and maybe the progress of the current file?

On another question, is it possible to tell it to skip files if they exist already, or overwire if it does exist.

Thank you
