Copy Large amount of data using rsync

Copying large amount of data,like 300 or 400GB’s from one hdd to another using nautilus or any file manager may fail on some occasions. Using the command rsync will be a better idea to copy large piles of data. This will show the progress percentage and the amount of data copied.

rsync -ah --info=progress2 SOURCE_PATH DESTINATION_PATH

change SOURCE and DESTINATION path according to your needs.
