I'm developing a backup utility and this involves the use of File.Copy static
method to make a copy of a file to another file.
a link to another file or directory ( the .lnk extension file ) is copied as
is to destination.
a link to another file or directory ( the symlink ) is dereferenced and the
destination result in the dereferenced file or directory.
Why is used this implementation of the File.Copy w/symlink on Unix?
The application work very different if I execute the same IL code on different
platform. Is necessary to mantain this different behavior?
Is there another solution to make a symlink copied as a symlink without using
