This is a newbie question.

How to you copy or save a file to /root.

I have Xterm and can become root, but I do not know how to save or move a file from MyDocs to /root.


Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the quick response.

So would this be correct if the file was located in Documents:

cp /home/user/MyDocs/test.tgz /root/test.tgz

That would work, provided you have root access.
You can also exclude the second occurrence of the filename, and if you're in the /home/user directory you don't need to use the full path e.g.
Code:
cp MyDocs/test.tgz /root
