Checks the files in the source and destination match.
Checks the files in the source and destination match. It compares sizes and hashes (MD5 or SHA1) and logs a report of files which don't match. It doesn't alter the source or destination.
If you supply the --size-only flag, it will only compare the sizes not the hashes as well. Use this for a quick check.
If you supply the --download flag, it will download the data from both remotes and check them against each other on the fly. This can be useful for remotes that don't support hashes or if you really want to check all the data.
If you supply the
--one-way flag, it will only check that files in
the source match the files in the destination, not the other way
around. This means that extra files in the destination that are not in
the source will not be detected.
--error flags write paths, one per line, to the file name (or
stdout if it is
-) supplied. What they write is described in the
help below. For example
--differ will write all paths which are
present on both the source and destination but different.
--combined flag will write a file (or stdout) which contains all
file paths with a symbol and then a space and then the path to tell
you what happened to it. These are reminiscent of diff files.
= pathmeans path was found in source and destination and was identical
- pathmeans path was missing on the source, so only in the destination
+ pathmeans path was missing on the destination, so only in the source
* pathmeans path was present in source and destination but different.
! pathmeans there was an error reading or hashing the source or dest.

--combined string Make a combined report of changes to this file --differ string Report all non-matching files to this file --download Check by downloading rather than with hash. --error string Report all files with errors (hashing or reading) to this file -h, --help help for check --match string Report all matching files to this file --missing-on-dst string Report all files missing from the destination to this file --missing-on-src string Report all files missing from the source to this file --one-way Check one way only, source files must exist on remote
