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.

OPTIONS
       --from=remote

              Use this option to 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
              Use this option to copy the content of files from the local
              repository to the specified remote.

       --jobs=N -JN
              Enables parallel transfers with up to the specified number of
              jobs running at once. For example: -J10

       --auto Rather than copying all files, only copy files 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 Avoid contacting the remote to check if it has every file when
              copying --to it.

       --force
              Force checking the remote for every file when copying --from it.

       --all  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 move a specified key.

       file matching options
              The git-annex-matching-options(1) can be used to specify files
              to copy.

       --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.
