Recursive Hard Links

Postby Fishbowler on Mon Sep 12, 2011 10:28 am

I've got a backup of the mother-in-law's hard drive and it's a chuffing mess.
I'd like to run some fun scripts to put the files in some semblance of order, but before I do, I'd like to take a backup.
Since I'm not touching file content, hard links seem like a good way to save space.

I've duplicated the folder holding the backup using
Code: Select all
cp -rl

Is that enough?
