question about touch /s

Jun 5, 2009
When I use touch recursively, for example:

touch /s *.usf

It prints out thousands of messages like this:

TCC: (Sys) The system cannot find the file specified.

When I use /s, it's because I know there is a set of files located somewhere in the directory tree that I want touched. I don't care about the directories that don't have any files, I care about the seeing files that were actually touched.

The behavior of other commands with the /s argument seems to be the same. Am I missing some option to control this spam?
