View Full Version : [ubuntu] limit transfer speed

January 12th, 2010, 10:12 PM
I have an old hard drive that has much of my music on it. I would like to transfer the data over but karmic is a bit fast for it. How do I limit the transfer speed to maybe 1 mbit/s? I have tried googling this and have looked at the man for the cp command.

You could try rsync with the bwlimit option.
