custangro, I'm not sure that would be any faster than an actual "scp -r", and it requires storage for files.tar at both ends. But, that IS the way to do it if you need to preserve permissions/ownership at both ends.

Thank you all so much for great advice.

Just curious, will the USB keep my file intact? what is the difference between the format on USB and the format on a hard drive?

The command
scp -r username@<remote machineIP>:/home/username/remotefile . should work. I just tested it between two of my own machines just to double check that I had the syntax correct.
