Thank you for the helpful instructions.

The progress output currently goes to the display, but is there a way to
direct the progress output to a file for future review, as well as to the
display? The problem is that I can only scull up so far on the monitor and
I want to see which files were skipped early on during the copy.

Many thanks.

Descend into the directory and execute ..

(cd /mnt/oldserver && find . -depth | cpio -dvmp /usr/cvsroot)
