copying with rsync and progress info

when copying there is no way with copy to show progress / performance, so one cannot tell if a link is useless or not.

Use Rsync instead

This link with some info copied below shows a method

rsync -r --info=progress2 ./path directory /containing path directory
rsync --progress -a sourceDirectory destinationDirectory

This will produce a copy, but add in progress bars showing amount complete, as well as rate information.

No notes on how to transfer a single file by this method, if including path is needed.  Will add that later
