Copy folders on Mac using Finder replaces the folders instead of merging them like in Windows

I didn’t know about that and lost some valuable data by copying using finder. Best way to copy is to switch to terminal and do a copy using ‘cp -R’ command. The cp command does a merge instead of replacing. You can also try ‘ditto’ command.
