My copy of git-annex refuses to sync all, namely when I try it I get the following error
$ git annex sync --content --all git-annex: unrecognized option `--all' Usage: git-annex sync [REMOTE ...] [option ...] --content also transfer file contents To see additional options common to all commands, run: git annex help options
This contradicts the advice on preferred content set out under difference: unused, and I cannot see any other options in my man page that would address the lack of this option.
The problem I am trying to solve is that I wish to preserve all history on the backup drives. Namely, if I do the following
touch test-of-annex-backup.txt git annex add test-of-annex-backup.txt git commit --message='test: Create empty test-of-annex-backup.txt file' git annex edit test-of-annex-backup.txt echo "This line creates version 2 of this file" > test-of-annex-backup.txt git annex add test-of-annex-backup.txt git commit --message='test: Create version 2 of test-of-annex-backup.txt' git annex sync --content --all
I expect to see 2 copies of
test-of-annex-backup.txt be copied to each accessible annex repository in the
I tried googling for
"git annex sync --content --all", but I only find pages telling me that this is what I should use, and none saying the option has been deprecated.
I am very confused, as this seems to me an almost stereotypical use of git-annex, and yet I cannot see how to do it
