Thread: Something like "teracopy" for linux?

  1. #1

    Default Something like "teracopy" for linux?

    Hi I have been looking for some software that is similar to teracopy (which is only for win) for linux. More importantly something that can recursively copy and check (like CRC/Size/etc) as it copies (or after it copies). Any suggestions would really be appreciated!

    Cheers

    This is possible in Dolphin. Well pausing is.

    I'm really not sure what advantage that application has?

    I think Grsync (GUI front-end for rsync) may offer some of these features. It is a powerful file synchronisation tool, and might work for you.

    Well the Pausing part is nice but really i was focusing more on the ability to do CRC checks (and for whatever reasong, in win at least, teracopy is much faster than win copy)

    Hey, you're on linux !! There's loads of programs with and without GUI:
    - cp (tons of options, read 'man cp')
    - rsync
    - qrsync
    - unison
    - dd (read 'man dd')

    Maybe you can write, what exactly you want to achieve with a replacement for teracopy.

    I knwow its a long time ago but have you found something like teracopy for Linux?
    I'm also searching for this copy-program.

    For people who don't know teracopy for windows: It takes over the windows copy completely (copy-past, drag-drop everything). It is a lot faster then normal windows actions. It has pause-resume (not very important) but the most important thing it does is: It checks the copied files after copying if it is exactly the same with a checksum or hash sum.

    If something does not exists: is there a program that can check files if they are exactly the same with a checksum or hash sum or md5 for whole directory's?

    rsync can do all of that.

    I don't see a verify write option in rsync. :-?

    How do you think it decides whether files need updating?

    Just to be pedantic, by default it does it by modify timestamp and
    filesize (both must match in order for the file to be declared the same)
    which is a good, easy, fast start. Be sure to enable the checksum
    argument, though, to actually verify the checksum. From the manpage:

    -c, --checksum skip based on checksum, not mod-time & size

    Good luck.
