See the progress of a file copy

Recently updated at April 3, 2018

Not all tools will provide a progress bar. There is still a way to determine the status, by looking at the file descriptors of a process.

- 1. Find the process ID
- 2. ls -l /proc/[pid]/fd to see which fd number refers to the file being copied or worked with
- 3. cat /proc/[pid]/fdinfo/[fd]
