Is there any other way to refer to the root directory besides "/"?
I have a ReadyNAS Pro on which I'm trying to set up a backup. When it asks me what directory I want to back up, it wants me to leave off the leading slash. For example, it wants me to enter "home/jason" if I want to back up "/home/jason". This is problematic when I want to back up "/" because it won't accept "" as a path.
I've tried creating a symlink for "/" but that didn't work.
Is there any other way to refer to the root directory? Any other thoughts on how to solve the problem?
