Hello, I am doing backups of my documents folder in a destination folder which it is in the same SSD disk, in order to have the quicker speed doing backups and be independent of internet connection. However, I need now to free space because the disk is almost full.
My question is: Is it possible to move the backup files to an external drive, and leave instead a symbolic link in the backup folder? There is a lot of old backup files that apparently are not accessed for rutine backup.
Apparently the idea it works (I am using windows 7), but I am not sure if I will have problems, for example if the disk with the symbolic link target is not attached.
Also, duplicati reports a warning for each linked file, because the size is 0 bytes, and the expected size is greater. Nevertheless, this not a problem for using the file. Can I turn off these warnings?
Thanks you very much.
