[Backup and NEW backup] what about ignoring symbolic links?
« on: September 25, 2020, 07:40:58 AM »
As already required, some kind of filed and folders exclusion could be very useful.
What Iím asking now it to exclude symbolic links from backup.
For sites with large data I often use external services like Amazon S3 mounted with s3fs-fuse or on other volume mounts.
Well, there was the default backup enabled and after some alerts from Netdata I saw the backup process
Code: [Select]
/usr/bin/rsync -avzr --no-o --no-g --delete /home/ACCOUNT/ /mnt/bk/cwp_backup/daily/ACCOUNTworking hard, downloading 2TB of files from Amazon S3 filling my local volume (and spending $ for AWS S3 traffic).
What about adding a --no-links to the command, or better, allowing to customize/override the backup script?
