NAME
       git-annex-copy - copy content of files to/from another repository

SYNOPSIS
       git annex copy [path ...] [--from=remote|--to=remote]

DESCRIPTION
       Copies the content of files from or to another remote.

       With no parameters, operates on all annexed files in the current
       directory.  Paths of files or directories to operate on can be specified.

OPTIONS
       --from=remote

              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.

       --to=remote
              Copy the content of files from the local repository to the
              specified remote.

       --to=here
              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.

       --auto 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)

       --fast 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.

       --branch=ref
              Operate on files in the specified branch or treeish.

       --unused
              Operate on files found by last run of git-annex unused.

       --failed
              Operate on files that have recently failed to be transferred.

       --key=keyname
              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.

       --batch
              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.

       -z     Makes the --batch input be delimited by nulls instead of the usual
              newlines.

       --json Enable JSON output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that
              use git-annex. Each line of output is a JSON object.

       --json-progress
              Include progress objects in JSON output.

       --json-error-messages
              Messages that would normally be output to standard error are
              included in the json instead.
