Check copy progress in terminal

If we want to check the progress of a copy process in terminal, then we can use the rsync command.
man rsync:
rsync – a fast, versatile, remote (and local) file-copying tool

rsync works similarly as cp command. For example:

rsync source destination

To see the progress, add the –progress flag to rsync

rsync --progress source destination

To see it in human-readable format:

rsync -ah --progress source destination
