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

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

       Copies the content of files from or to another remote.


              Copy the content of files from the specified remote to the local

              Any files that are not available on the remote will be silently

              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.

       --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-

       --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

              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.

       -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.

              Include progress objects in JSON output.

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