Not sure if this use case is supported, but I have the following setup - I use git-annex to store my Lightroom catalog and photos. My local machine does not contain all files,
.mov files for example are excluded via the preferred content mechanism. The full backup is on a remote server using ssh.
Now I want to create another copy of the data (encrypted) from my local machine to a USB stick or similar. I found that the locally excluded files are not synced. In order to copy all the data I first need to change the preferred content config, execute
git-annex get to fetch the data, then copy via
git-annex sync myusbremote --content, then change the local preferred content pattern, then run
git annex drop --auto to delete the local unwanted content again.
I was wondering if there's a way to sync from one remote to another, without storing any data locallly ? Something like
git-annex sync --from ... --to ....
