-u 1 doesn't work with globstars

See original GitHub issue

When trying to copy the files and folders from one folder to another using globstars and -u 1:

copyfiles -u 1 ./dist/** ../Angular2Test/Content/myapp

It gives this error:

K:\dev\Angular2Test\Angular2Source\node_modules\copyfiles\index.js:30 throw new Error(‘cant go up that far’); ^

Error: cant go up that far at dealWith (K:\dev\Angular2Test\Angular2Source\node_modules\copyfiles\index .js:30:11) at K:\dev\Angular2Test\Angular2Source\node_modules\copyfiles\index.js:64:39 at FSReqWrap.oncomplete (fs.js:82:15)

@mkimmet You didn’t use the same syntax. Use **/*. Try this:

copyfiles -u 1 \"./dist/**/*\" ../Angular2Test/Content/myapp

I’m pretty sure the solution is to use escaped double-quotes

copyfiles -u 1 \"./dist/**/*\" ../Angular2Test/Content/myapp
