  what's the quickest way to copy almost 200G of content from one
system to another, that guarantees that all owner/group/perms info
will be preserved?  in my time, i've used all of scp, rsync and
tar-to-tar.  what's the preferred tool out there?  thanks.

  actually, speed isn't that much of an issue, as much as the
preservation of all attributes.
