NAME
       git-annex-numcopies - configure desired number of copies

SYNOPSIS
       git annex numcopies N

DESCRIPTION
       Tells git-annex how many copies it should preserve of files, over all
       repositories. The default is 1.

       Run without a number to get the current value.

       This configuration is stored in the git-annex branch, so it will be
       seen by all clones of the repository.

       When git-annex is asked to drop a file, it first verifies that the
       required number of copies can be satisfied among all the other
       repositories that have a copy of the file.

       This can be overridden on a per-file basis by the annex.numcopies
       setting in .gitattributes files.
