Re: usb 16go key copy problem on SAM

To get around this kind of thing when I used to back up my OS3.x installion of GeekGadgets was tar the entire directory with is it -h option? Which cause softlinks etc to be turned into the solid representation. I can't remember if once you untar it it created the softlinks for you or actually install the real files each time it was required.

Maybe you should see if there is a copy switch or alternative program that does support this kind of transfer.

Sounds like a good project for someone, perhaps an author of an existing copy program alternative that could implement it in there code.

As an alternative back up the pref files only and have the Amicynix or others archived in original binary distribution.

That's what is so great about the AmigaOS there are many ways of doing something. You probably just want something to work though and I understand that but hey, you have to improvise occassionally
