Is there a way to backup some directories explicitly included in
Configuration/Filters/Include..., even if those directories contain symbolic links? (Windows).
Here’s my case:
I have a directory (
C:\Mount) containing a fixed set of symbolic links to all of my storage devices that I need to access and backup (
C:\Mount\RAID1\ etc). Not all of these devices are associated with drive letters, so I only access them through these symbolic links.
I want to make a backup copy of data accessed from
C:\Mount, but I want to avoid circular references in other symlinks in the directory tree. So I:
- left the
- explicitly included all directories required for backup (
+C:\Mount\RAID1\etc) in the Configuration/Filters set.
But I see that
symlink-policy=Ignore take precedence over
Configuration/Filters and those filters (
+C:\Mount\RAID1\) don’t work.
Is there a way to solve this problem? Thank you in advance.
