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.

With no parameters, operates on all annexed files in the current directory. Paths of files or directories to operate on can be specified.

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.
--force
Override numcopies and required content checking, and always remove files from the source repository once the destination repository has a copy.
Note that, even without this option, you can move the content of a file from one repository to another when numcopies is not satisfied, as long as the move does not result in there being fewer copies.
--jobs=N -JN
Enables parallel transfers with up to the specified number of jobs running at once. For example: -J10
Setting this to "cpus" will run one job per CPU core.
--all -A
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.
matching options
The git-annex-matching-options(1) can be used to control what 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 does not match specified matching options, 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.
--batch-keys
This is like --batch but the lines read from stdin are parsed as keys.
-z
Makes batch input be delimited by nulls instead of the usual newlines.
--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.
--json-error-messages
Messages that would normally be output to standard error are included in the json instead.
Also the git-annex-common-options(1) can be used.
