  • Synching Symlinks

    We use a product called 'Enterprise Vault' that archives older files. Unfortunately BC3 reports these as the normal filesize but they are actually zero byte symlinks (shortcuts). The risk is that the 'proper' file is overwritten by the zero-byte symlink.

    Is there any way to create a rule the BC3 will recognise and ignore symlinks? The affected files can change depending on whether they have been accessed within the 'Enterprise Vault' rules.

    Hello,

    Are you using the latest version of BC3.2.4? If so, we have an option in the Folder Compare's Session menu -> Session Settings, Handling tab to "Follow Symlinks." Does disabling this option help?
