       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.

       With  no  parameters,  operates  on  all annexed files in the current directory.  Paths of
       files or directories to operate on can be specified.



              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.

              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 specified files, only copy those 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.

              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

              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
