Tips & Tricks:
Using ‘cp’ to copy files in Linux is a very convenient tool. However, knowing these switches can save you from making mistakes:
-i : Confirm before overwriting
-n : No overwriting
-b : Overwriting with backup
-r : Recursive copying
-u : Overwrite if the target file is old or doesn’t exist

Ex: $ cp -b sourcedirectory targetdirectory will overwrite the file if it exists but creates a backup file first.
