Component Core
Severity Enhancement
Comment Currently symlinks to files are followed, while symlinks to directories are ignored.

This also applies to calculation of directory sizes.

With synchronization the option should also determine, whether the file should be considered for synchronization.

With Bug #7 the option may also apply to upload on shortcuts.
