I was looking for Issues and other ressources explaining problems with hardlinks in ownCloud. The topic looks complex. And because of the complexity and the hugh amount of postings I wasn't able to find out what is the current state of that topic and if or how it could be resolved.
So this question here is not primary a technical one. It is more a "how will the ownCloud team" handle that topic?
I tested it with a Linux and Win10 client. I created two hard-linked files on my Linux (Debian GNU/LInux unstable) and synced it to the server (where I am not the admin!). I checked the inode number with
ls -li. It was a hard link.
Then I synced it to my Win10 (my boss doomed me with it!) machine. There I checked the FileID with
fsutil file queryfileid <filename>. They are not the same. So it isn't a hard link on Win10.
Is there a way to solve it?
Are there planes to support that in ownCloud? What would be the current official Issue/Ticket about it?
