git-annex-move - move content of files to/from another repository

git-annex-move(1) General Commands Manual git-annex-move(1)

NAME

git-annex-move - move content of files to/from another repository

SYNOPSIS

git annex move [path ...] [--from=remote|--to=remote|--to=here]

DESCRIPTION

Moves the content of files from or to another remote.

OPTIONS

--from=remote
Move the content of files from the specified remote to the local repository.
--to=remote
Move the content of files from the local repository to the specified remote.
--to=here
Move 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
--all
Rather than specifying a filename or path to move, this option can be used to move all available versions of all files.
This is the default behavior when running git-annex in a bare repository.
--branch=ref
Operate on files in the specified branch or treeish.
--unused
Operate on files found by last run of git-annex unused.
--failed
Operate on files that have recently failed to be transferred.
--key=keyname
Use this option to move a specified key.
--fast
When moving content to a remote, avoid a round trip to check if the remote already has content. This can be faster, but might skip moving content to the remote in some cases.
--force
When moving content from a remote, ignore location tracking information and always check if the remote has content. Can be useful if the location tracking information is out of date.
file matching options
The git-annex-matching-options(1) can be used to specify files to move.
--batch
Enables batch mode, in which lines containing names of files to move are read from stdin.
As each specified file is processed, the usual progress output is displayed. If a file's content does not need to be moved or it is not an annexed file, a blank line is output in response instead.
Since the usual output while moving a file is verbose and not machine-parseable, you may want to use --json in combination with --batch.
--json
Enable JSON output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that use git-annex. Each line of output is a JSON object.
--json-progress
Include progress objects in JSON output.
