Resuming transfer

Copy remote directory contents to local dir media with resume and recursive flags.

sftp -ar iron@irondesign.dev:/home/iron/video C:\Users\Iron\Media

Options:

-r Recursively copy entire directories when uploading and downloading. Note that sftp does not follow symbolic links encountered in the tree traversal.

-a Attempt to continue interrupted transfers rather than overwriting existing partial or complete copies of files. If the partial contents differ from those being transferred, then the resultant file is likely to be corrupt.
