    bogocopy [-v|--verbose] (-s|--size SIZE_MB) SRCDIR DSTDIR

copy a directory tree, preserving permissions and modification times, but making zero-size sparse copies of big files

--s,--size SIZE_MB

Size limit, files leq to this size (in MB) are real-copied, those above are not.

Bugs and limitations

  • Limited to unix-like systems with rsync and cp commands available.
  • Won't preserve the "ctime" (inode change time) of a node
  • Tested in only a desultory fashion, use at your own risk
