Linux User Files

Question :  There was some users data copied on Nautilus App Server 1 at /home/usersdata location by the Nautilus production support team in Stratos DC. Later they found that they mistakenly mixed up different user data there. Now they want to filter out some user data and copy it to another location. Find the details below:

On App Server 1 find all files (not directories) owned by user kirsty inside /home/usersdata directory and copy them all while keeping the folder structure (preserve the directories path) to /media directory.

Please Note :-  Perform the below commands based on your question  server,  user name & other details might differ . So please read task carefully before executing. All the Best 👍
