Best utility to copy massive amounts of data
Just asking out of curiosity...
Sometimes I need to copy a huge directory to another directory (local filesystem), and usually I will use the "cp" or "rsync" commands. These commands are good, but depending on the size of the data being copied, the copy is painfully slow.
I realize we are limited because of the hardware we have with it's limitations, ie, I/O speed, and the filesystem (which is usually ext3).
Are there any other utilities that maybe not well known, but can handle copying large amounts of data? (mostly in the TB range)
My best to you,
