Resume scp download

Tagged rsync, scp, resume download  Languages bash

Unfortunately there is no way for scp to resume a download. Don't despair though if your download was interrupted. Rsync is capable of resuming it. Be aware though, that rsync makes a temporary file that will become as large as the target file is so your disk may become full during the resume process.

rsync --partial --progress --rsh=ssh host:/work/source.tar.bz2 .
