💡 Command Line Tips
To prevent files from getting overwritten while moving because of the same name, use this:
mv -n source_file target_directory
Another tip is to use the
-u option. With this, the source files will only be moved to the new location if the source file is newer than the existing file or if it doesn't exist in the target directory.
mv -u source_file target_directory
