sshfs connection needs trailing slash

SSHFS allows accessing directories and files on remote SSH servers as if they were on your local PC. One quirk is that accessing a large number of small files will incur a speed penalty.

When specifying the remote directory using sshfs, include a trailing slash to avoid Input/Output Error messages.

  • correct: sshfs -o workaround=rename joe@server:/opt/netfiles/ ~/Z
