[rdiff-backup-users] Re: Hard links? backing up dated snapshots

On a more serious note, how about using a hard link instead?

The snapshot files ssName-YYYYMMDDHHmm.ext reside in a read only NFS mounted 
Windows 3K share.

I can't make a hard link across file systems, nor in a read only share, and I 
suspect that Windows does not handle hard links well.

I expect I can live with

cp -p ssName-YYYYMMDDHHmm.ext /src/ssName.ext
rdiff-backup /src  /targ

Thanks, Steve
