To avoid needing to set up everything the way I like it every time I do this, I have a user named Template that I duplicate. Before upgrading to Mojave my procedure was to create a user in system preferences, then delete the user folder and use a terminal command to copy over the template user to a user folder with the name of the user I just created-.
The new user account has no access to my contacts, even though it is connected to iCloud and things like Notes do synch.
It also doesn't have my email setup. There may be other problems, but this are the ones that I saw immediately. There used to be a way to do this with MigrationAssistant but when I tried that, instead of just copying my template from a backup and allowing for it to be renamed, it complained that template would be the only user on the machine and it was not an admin. That doesn't seem like something I'd want to continue with.
Thanks for the response but ditto won't copy some files either. I pasted the error messages below.
sudo ditto command
Another time setting up homebrew to install to my root directory caused some major shit. IMO the funnest part about using osx is trying to fix it after you break it.
Why would you ever try setting up homebrew to install to root directories? It is literally made to not be installed into the root directory use macports or something else for that. I haven't ever had a problem using the terminal and I'm not good at it either.
You just have to be careful and read into it. Well the crisis is all over now so don't fret about researching or anything like that.
File & Folder Manipulation Commands
But all I used was sudo ditto source destination. I'm at work so I can't remember the path.

The source was an external HD plugged into my local machine, and the destination was a network location. I didn't use any switches or arguments. Out of curiosity, if ditto was dropped do you know another easy way to copy a lot of files?
I'm hobbyist photographer and was trying to move my top level folder to a new location. Ideally I'd like something that just skips things that already exist. I use robocopy on PC a lot so I was hoping for something like that. Cake Day. Looks like you're using new Reddit on an old browser.
