I know wget command can resume downloads. H>ow do I resume partially transferred files using rsync command line under Unix like operating systems?
Yee, by default, the rsync command will delete any partially transferred file if the transfer is interrupted. In some circumstances it is more desirable to keep partially transferred files. Using the --partial option tells rsync to keep the partial file which should make a subsequent transfer of the rest of the file much faster. The syntax is:
rsync -av --partial /path/to/file /path/to/dest rsync -av --partial firstname.lastname@example.org:/path/to/file /path/to/dest
You can also use -P option for the same purpose. In this example, copy partially transferred file:
rsync -avP email@example.com:~/Downloads/centos.iso ~/Downloads/
