Currently duplicity supports (...) symbolic links (...) but not hard links.
It is not clarified but most likely it means that soft links are followed. For obvious reasons I want to avoid backuping
~/Desktop/temporary_symbolic_link_to_hard_drive_with_gbs_of_data and other symbolic-link related problems.
How can I disable following symbolic links by duplicity (like
--no-dereference option in diff command)?
I know that I can use
--exclude option but it requires generating backup command by script detecting symbolic links but it would be overcomplicated and fragile.
