I need to backup a huge folder (more than 100 GB) from an external server. I use scp command in a linux terminal but connection issues happen sometimes. So I need to restart the procedure every time. Is there a way to exclude from the scp copy the folders and files just downloaded?

    You may want to look at alternate solutions, such as rsync, which do this sort of thing automatically. – Stephen Harris Apr 6 at 16:53
  • Dear Stephen, thank you for your replay. But how can I do with rsync? Because, for my knowledge, I'm able to specify folders and files to not transfer. Instead, I need an automatic procedure to recognize the folders/files just donwloaded. – Byba Apr 7 at 11:24
