Does rclone ignore symlinked files?

does rclone ignore symlinked files?

if not, can i tell rclone to ignore symlinked files?

Yes it does.

One day soon I will implement the -L flag which will follow them: https://github.com/ncw/rclone/issues/40

thanks for clearing that up.

Will rclone remove files during sync which have the same name as files which already exist on destination?
E.g.
rclone sync -L (copy symlinked files)
then
rclone sync (no -L)?
