When copying folders and entire subtrees what is the difference between cp and rsync
Upon my initial looking both cp and rsync will copy an entire directory structure. That being said, what is the purpose for each and which is better? cp -R $source $destination vs rsync -auq $source $destination I was trying to look into and figure this out more, but they both seemed to copy an entire directory around the same speed. Does one leverage another? When cloning someone's HD which is the best course of action and why?
I think the main purpose of rsync not to copy directory from to the same system or machine It efficiently copies and sync files to or from a remote system. Remote system like two different machines and if you need the difference if you use them locally see this link
