Pcopy is intended to be used when doing large disk(partition) to disk(partition) copying where dd is just too slow (and error prone).

      It isn't similar at all. cp and rsync copies files
      and directories one by one - whereas pcopy
      moves whole disks, partitions and filesystems
      in one big chunk.

      How is pcopy better than, say, cp -a? Or rsync?
