I don't think scp verifies that the data sent has been correctly received on other machine.
I had backed up my home folder by sending it to another machine by scp.
I nearly had a heart attack when after some days i scped the data back from that machine to my machine. 90% folders were missing !!
Then on my 3rd scp attempt i could get all my data back. That data was in tar format !
