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
