I used to rsync and xfr#1, to-chk=0/1, what do they mean? but with the recent rsync bug https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=862899 I don't know the solution.

Does anybody of any alternative which could provide the same features as rsync did for this specific purpose ?


If you’re specifically looking for “copy with progress information”, check out pv

pv source > target

or progress

cp source target & progress -mp $!

Neither of these will account for the sync time to a USB drive, but rsync wouldn’t either AFAIK.
