git-annex-numcopies(1) configure desired number of copies


git annex numcopies N


Tells git-annex how many copies it should preserve of files, over all repositories. The default is 1.

Run without a number to get the current value.

When git-annex is asked to drop a file, it first verifies that the required number of copies can be satisfied among all the other repositories that have a copy of the file.

This can be overridden on a per-file basis by the annex.numcopies setting in .gitattributes files.
