I just copied a few directories and files using SCP from a SSH remote server. How can I check if the files were copied exactly and there were no errors or no files were skipped?

You can use md5sum * > chksum.txt on the source side, transfer the chksum.txt file using scp and then on the destination side do:

md5sum -c chksum.txt
