|git-annex-copy(1)||General Commands Manual||git-annex-copy(1)|
With no parameters, operates on all annexed files in the current directory. Paths of files or directories to operate on can be specified.
- Copy the content of files from the specified remote to the local repository.
- Any files that are not available on the remote will be silently skipped.
- Copy the content of files from the local repository to the specified remote.
- Copy the content of files from all reachable remotes to the local repository.
- --jobs=N -JN
- Enables parallel transfers with up to the specified number of jobs running at once. For example: -J10
- Setting this to "cpus" will run one job per CPU core.
- Rather than copying all specified files, only copy those that don't yet have the desired number of copies, or that are preferred content of the destination repository. See git-annex-preferred-content(1)
- When copying content to a remote, avoid a round trip to check if the remote already has content. This can be faster, but might skip copying content to the remote in some cases.
- --all -A
- Rather than specifying a filename or path to copy, this option can be used to copy all available versions of all files.
- This is the default behavior when running git-annex in a bare repository.
- Operate on files in the specified branch or treeish.
- Operate on files found by last run of git-annex unused.
- Operate on files that have recently failed to be transferred.
- Use this option to copy a specified key.
- file matching options
- The git-annex-matching-options(1) can be used to specify files to copy.
- Enables batch mode, in which lines containing names of files to copy are read from stdin.
- As each specified file is processed, the usual progress output is displayed. If a file's content does not need to be copied, or it does not match specified matching options, or it is not an annexed file, a blank line is output in response instead.
- Since the usual output while copying a file is verbose and not machine-parseable, you may want to use --json in combination with --batch.
- Makes the --batch input be delimited by nulls instead of the usual newlines.
- Enable JSON output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that use git-annex. Each line of output is a JSON object.
- Include progress objects in JSON output.
- Messages that would normally be output to standard error are included in the json instead.
