Does anyone know of a third party build of robocopy or an alternate command line copy utility that has similar features but integrates Smart Copy for handling Junctions Symlink and Hardlinked files ?
I have several programs that use a unusual virtual filesystem architecture that relies heavily on hard-links. I generally use robocopy for backing up my data drive since it skips existing files and reduces the time it takes to copy the drive. the only problem is that i found out that robocopy corrupts these because junctions are copied as folders and hard linked files are copied multiple times i can exclude junctions however this means there are missing paths on the destination drive.
Right now i am looking for a command line utility that can function similarly to robocopy in that it supports mirror mode and will skip existing files but that includes a Smart Copy functionality so that junctions and sym/hardlinks are properly copied with their correct relations
Please respond soon this is a major issue for me as i currently have several directory structures which I cannot back up with my current tools
