I was transferring several thousand files each ~1MB via scp and my connection was broken after the first 2k files or so. I wanted to know if there was a way to resume the recursive transfer w/o starting over. Something like
$ scp -r firstname.lastname@example.org:/datafiles/ ./ ... Happy Transfer ... ... BREAK! ... $ rsync -P email@example.com:/datafiles/ ./ ... Continue transf...
The problem is I can't seem to get the syntax correct if it is possible. Can anyone shed some light on if/how it can be done?
PS. If you specify the slash after "datafiles" in the rsync line, does that transfer the directory or its contents? I saw conflicting comments when I googled.
