You also need to include the appropriate starting point to the other partition; namely,
/Volumes/otherpartition/<rest of path>
The easiest way to get paths correctly is to select the destination folder in the Finder and click & drag it into the Terminal window. The OS will properly escape and spaces or oddball characters.
Additionally, the source path is malformed. It should be:
You don't need the boot drive's name, / suffices, and path's are case-sensitive.
my experience with the command line is limited at best, but i'm trying to create a sym link (ln -s) to create a folder, either named the same or named different. and for the life of me i can't get it to work, it either tells me:
"ln: user/directory/: No such file or directory"
it puts a dead alias with the name in the directory, but when you try to open it it asks me to delete fix or cancel.
i have done this before, but can't remember how i did it, i'm missing some / at the beginning or end or both i think. anybody have any thoughts?
