"/media" was not the directory to examine.
You need to examine the directory which you gave as second argument to cp.
In your initial post of this thread the cp command is quoted as

   cp -ax /  "/media/richard/MISC
   backups/dev_sda14/"

(Dunno whether the line break in that mail is significant.)
[SNIP]

The line break was an email artifact and have changed partition label to prevent future confusion.

This is the output of script command:

I also have the output of
  ls -aRil /media/richard/MISC-backups/dev_sda14/
available. IIRC someone had requested I run a similar command.
