I'm trying to back up our company's website using a regular old windows copy utility. Website is riddled with symlinks and if they were all followed would bloat the backup to 400% of it's normal girth.
I've told Samba not to follow symlinks, but copying the folders errors out really quick. Maybe it's the copy util's fault. Maybe it's the server's fault (har har). Anybody thought of a workaround, besides chmodding all my symlinks to make them transparent to the backup user?
