Optional backup of symbolic links.

Konstantin shared this idea 27 days ago
Under Consideration

At the moment symlinks that point beyond the copied tree are not backed up. All

absolute symlinks are also ignored. When restoring files from a backup copy, it is very important for the site to work correctly to restore symbolic links. This is true for sites written in Python when using virtualenv. Also for CMS Bitrix.


Please consider the possibility of creating an option for a backup copy including symlinks.

Hi,


Thank you for submitting this request,


Currently, Symbolik links are prevented due to security issues.

Although, after deep research of all aspects in general and the security aspect in particular, we will consider allowing using symlinks on JetBackup 4.1 and other JetApps products.
