    Log of skipped files?

    Is there a log of the filenames skipped when copying files in Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS and having clicked “Skip All” for errors?

    I've recently copied, via ctrl+c and ctrl+v, about 200GB of files from an external drive to my new Ubuntu machine. Because these files were from an old Windows machine, many of them triggered errors such as those relating to the file names being too large. For practicality's sake, I clicked "Skip All" so that my machine wouldn't pause the copying in order to inform me of these errors. Does Ubuntu save a log of these errors anywhere? I want to make sure that I haven't missed any important files.

    You can just do a "diff" on each directory.

    Consider using rsync in the future.
