    I have used an accounts backup to ftp server to backup the files.

    When I uncompress the file on a local drive I have public_html and www, which both contain the same files.

    On the server the www is a pointer to the public_html, but in the backup its duplicated. This takes up much more space and time to create the backups.

    Is this a bug or a setting that I am missing?

    I'm not seeing this here on my backups, I've just checked 3 of them.

    To be clear:

    When you unpack the homedir file you see this?
