git-annex-copy(1)           General Commands Manual          git-annex-copy(1)



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

              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.

       --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 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.

       --force
              When copying content from a remote, ignore location tracking
              information and always check if the remote has content. Can be
              useful if the location tracking information is out of date.

       --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 move 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 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.

       --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.
