rsync is a fast and versatile command-line utility for synchronizing files and directories between two locations over a remote shell, or from/to a remote Rsync daemon. It provides fast incremental file transfer by transferring only the differences between the source and the destination.
Rsync can be used for mirroring data, incremental backups, copying files between systems, and as a replacement for

This article explains how to use
rsync through practical examples and detailed explanations of the most common
rsync utility is pre-installed on most Linux distributions and macOS. If you don’t have
rsync installed on your system, you can easily install it using your distribution’s package manager.
sudo apt install rsync
sudo yum install rsync
Before going into how to use the
rsync command, let’s start by reviewing the basic syntax.
rsync utility expressions take the following form:
Local to Local: rsync [OPTION]... [SRC]... DEST Local to Remote: rsync [OPTION]... [SRC]... [[email protected]]HOST:DEST Remote to Local: rsync [OPTION]... [[email protected]]HOST:SRC... [DEST]
OPTION- The rsync options .
SRC- Source directory.
DEST- Destination directory.
USER- Remote username.
HOST- Remote hostname or IP Address.
rsync provides a number of options that control how the command behaves. The most widely used options are:
--archive, archive mode, equivalent to
-rlptgoD. This option tells
rsyncto syncs directories recursively, transfer special and block devices, preserve symbolic links, modification times, groups, ownership, and permissions.
--compress. This option forces
rsyncto compresses the data as it is sent to the destination machine. Use this option only if the connection to the remote machine is slow.
-P, equivalent to
--partial --progress. When this option is used,
rsyncshows a progress bar during the transfer and keeps the partially transferred files. It is useful when transferring large files over slow or unstable network connections.
--delete. When this option is used,
rsyncdeletes extraneous files from the destination location. It is useful for mirroring.
--quiet. Use this option if you want to suppress non-error messages.
-e. This option allows you to choose a different remote shell. By default,
rsyncis configured to use ssh.
