    While working on linux we usually need command to copy folder from one location to another , this can be archived by simple console commands in a simple way :

    cp -r sourcedir targetdir : Where -r means recursively i.e all the files in a folder

    For example :

    1) Copy anything from current directory to /mnt/backup
    
    cp -r * /mnt/backup
    
    2) Copy whole directory (include content) /mnt/backup to target /var/www/html
    
    cp -r  /mnt/backup  /var/www/html
