I'm not quite sure that I understand the difference between using
--copy-links flag or no flag at all.
I am currently using rclone to migrate large volumes from one NAS to another. In order to do that, I installed and Ubuntu 22.04 jumpbox where both volumes are mounted (the 'old' and the 'new').
Since the 'old' volume contains symlinks, I'm not quite sure if that know which flags to use.
From the documentation, I believe that the
--links option is since it will create special files instead of the links.
I'm currently using the
--copy-links because "it sounds like the right thing to do". However, I'm gettings quite a lot of notices:
Can't follow symlink without -L/--copy-links
Which is confusing since I'm using the
Now, I'm wondering if I should not simply not use any flag and discard the notices.
Thanks in advance for any clarification on the possible options!
