    Sorry for posting this here but didn't find any answer elsewhere, maybe a guru can help me:

    cp -f won't force override. It will ask for every file if I want to override.

    is there any settings file for the command? Some kind of limitation elsewhere?

    I am logged in as root and want to -rf copy dirs and it takes hours until I am through.

    (this happens only with one of the servers, others work fine)
