Need a reliable method to copy large amounts of files
Posted on 2013-11-12
I have a problem in that I have to transfer hundreds of gigabytes of files from a linux server to an external usb drive and the fact that the transfer will literally take weeks to accomplish.
I have the fear that once the transfer begins, something will happen that will cause the copying to stop, and I will be stuck with part of the files transferred and the rest not.
Is there a method I can use whereby I can start the transfer, and if anything happens in mid-stream to stop it, I can restart where I left off?
