[K12OSN] [ot] rsync option

I'm not sure if this is a one-time task or one you want to repeat.

If it is a one (or couple) time task, I've done it quite easily in the
past using midnight commander (mc).  Start MC, then do a search for
all the files in the directory and subdirectory with only a wildcard
*.  Then once you get the results, one of the options is to panalize
the search results.  Doing that will result in a single listing of all
the files in all directories and sub-directories.

Tab over to the other side, identify the destination (it can be
another server as MC lets you ssh/ftp) then hit F5 to copy or F6 to
move and you're done.

Hope that helps.
