Description of my issue
I’m trying to create a symbolic link from /home/yunohost.backup/archives to a USB drive that is mounted at /media/ynhrecovery (The drive is mounted and does work!)
The idea is that when I do a YNH backup the backup goes to /media/ynhrecovery instead of the default: /home/yunohost.backup/archives
I couldnt get it to work becuse I’m a dunce. I was creating the sybolic link in the wong place!
I deleted the archive folder in /home/yunohost.backup/ then in the same directory I created the symlink as follows:
I was always getting an error that the directory couldn’t be found, however, if I created the symbolic link in the /media/ynhrecovery/ directory it worked perfectly. backups are now going straight to my USB drive.
Thanks for your help with this, I think I now understand symlinks better.
