sync very quickly. Rsync is fast because it just sends the differences
in the files over the network instead of sending the complete
files. Rsync is often used as a very powerful mirroring process or
just as a more capable replacement for the rcp command. A technical

Rsync is a fast and extraordinarily versatile file copying tool for
both remote and local files.
