I’m backing up some old data on some servers and download it all via ftp is slow.
Solution, command line it with something like this:
scp -r firstname.lastname@example.org:/path/to/foo /home/user/Desktop/
Just by adding “-r” you can recursively download and entire remote directory to your desktop or local directory for backup.
If you’re already logged into the remote server then no need to login again with prefixed user and server information.
