a. Android shell has no cp command, only mv
b. mv sourcedir/* targetdir works silently, even if you make a typo and targetdir doesn't exist. Then everything gets overwritten to the same file, leaving only the last one. Do you know how long it takes to wipe out several hours worth of test data? Hint: it takes longer to press Ctrl+C.

The worst part is that I already know how to avoid this - mv sourcedir/* targetdir/ (note hte / at the end)
This way, you get an error if targetdir doesn't exist.

F***.
