I have a nightly non-progressive backup running in FMS 12 on OSX server 10.6.8



problem 1


It appears the 12k links are being created even if data has changed in some cases



problem 2

This does not seem to work on OS X10.6.8 server -- I copy a 12k link to the destop and get an un-openable file.


Never edit a file in a backup directory
...... Instead, make a copy of the file to some other destination, which automatically makes a completely separate full copy of the file, then edit the copy in the new destination.



What am I missing?
