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.

       --to=here
              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

       --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.

       --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 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.

       --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.
