NAME

       git-annex-migrate - switch data to different backend

SYNOPSIS

       git annex migrate [path ...]

DESCRIPTION

       Changes  the  specified  annexed  files  to  use the default key-value backend (or the one
       specified with --backend). Only files whose content is currently available are migrated.

       Note that the content is also still available using the old key after migration.  Use  git
       annex unused to find and remove the old key.

       Normally,  nothing  will  be  done  to files already using the new backend.  However, if a
       backend changes the information it uses to construct a key,  this  can  also  be  used  to
       migrate files to use the new key format.

       When  you  have multiple repositories that each contain a copy of a file, it's best to run
       migrate in all of them.

OPTIONS

       --backend

              Specify the new key-value backend to use for migrated data.

       --force
              Force migration of keys that are already using the new backend.

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