copying hardlinked backups

have 2 external drives, and i use backintime to backup my main hd to one of these drives.  now i want to copy the 1st external usb drive to the 2nd, but backintime uses hardlinks, and i need to preserve these.  rsync can do it, but evidently takes a long time, so easier to use

[sourcecode lang=”bash”]

cp -avr


sometimes the simplest solution is the best.
