    I'd recommend rsync (over SSH). That way you can do an initial full copy and then when that's done run it again and transfer anything that's new/deleted/changed since your initial copy.

    Hi

    I would use SCP to start with, then rsync afterwards if your files are always changing. Rsync is good at finding changes but cant take a long time with the initial copy.

    Hope that helps

    If you have a few different directories you can easily separate out I would suggest running a few different copies of rscync/scp each on a different directory. That will generally help you get the files moved quicker.

    Rsync over ssh is the best method. Login to server that contains the data and issue:
    Code:
    rsync -avz -e ssh /this/dir/ [email protected]:/remote/dir
