Problems with exclusions

Christoph     Mar 2 9:45AM 2018 CLI

I am running duplicacy -log backupon c:

This is in my filters file:

e:Documents and Settings/

But I still get

2018-03-02 15:43:42.705 WARN LIST_LINK Failed to read the symlink: readlink C:\Documents and Settings: Access is denied.

What am I doing wrong?

It reads the symlink info before applying the exclude patterns, so if the symlink isn't readable it will error out first.

Wouldn't it make sense to apply the exclude patterns first and then read the symlink (if it still applies)?

Can you submit a github issue for this?
