Copy an entire directory within PlaidCloud Document.
First, select the appropriate account from the dropdown menu.
Next, press the Browse button to select the directory you’d like to copy.
Next, press the Browse button to select the destination for the copied directory. If desired, the copied directory can be given a new name. To do so, simply check the Rename the Copied Folder to: box and type in a new name.
The default behavior is to overwrite anything which already exists. Be careful to not accidentally overwrite.
In this example, the etl_prototyping/data_files/ directory is copied into the etl_prototyping/ directory. It is renamed to test_copy_2.
As you can see below, the source and target directories have the same contents.
The copied directory’s files all contain the same timestamp as they were created during the copy.
