I like to test plugins on a mirror of our live community. Our files are hefty--around 2.5 gb zipped. I need a faster/successful way to copy these to a new location. Originally, I was using cPanel to create an archive. Now it times out. Next, I tried: "tar -zcvf". After 12 hours, it finished . . . but the backup was incomplete. Was missing /library, among other things. Is there a faster/better way? We manage the box (and my DBA's a volunteer, so I try to do as much as I can myself).
