I have E: drive that I have been using for years to dump my personal files. I just purchased 4TB drive for fear of failing drive, so I want to copy everything on E: to the new drive (F:). I could have drag and drop everything from E: to F: but I wanted a geekier way (well maybe more robust way) to copy files from E: drive too F: drive. Here is how I started the process with rsync.
rsync -avz --progress /mnt/e/* /mnt/f
I have like 1TB of data (that’s it?) and it will take hours for it to finish the copying process.
