Question: Backing up iTunes data to external HDD resulted in a smaller file than the original. cp -pr worked fine. Wondering what command or utility is deployed for the drag and drop.
Backing up iTunes data to external HDD via drag and drop resulted in a smaller file than the original. Seemed to have worked OK—didn't see any error messages. Resorted to cp -pr with success. Left wondering what command or utility is deployed by drag and drop. cp? dd? other? The problem may have occurred previously, but it isn't constant.
