Copy symlinks to google drive?


#1

On my server I use filebot to automatically sort and organize all my media into a new folder with symlinks back to the original(unorganized) files.

I want to copy an entire folder full of symlinks with rclone, but I get this error –
“Can’t follow symlink without -L/–copy-links”

What do I need to do?

Thanks.

rclone can’t copy symlinks at the moment, put it can follow them if you add the -L flag.

Please support the preservation of symlinks. It would be invaluable.
Thanks, Paul

Have bumped that issue on github, would be great to see this implemented.
