I tried out the Duplicacy CLI on OS X and found that hard links were restored as independent files. Is there some option to allow hard links to be restored as hard links?
I don’t think there’s such an option right now.
During backup Duplicacy doesn’t check if a file is a hard link or not, so the restore command can’t recover the hard links.
But, I think it is possible to introduce a new switch to the restore command, that will blindly create a hard link if a file to be restored happens to have the same file as another already restored file, regardless of whether they were hard linked before.
I think this would be an acceptable solution,
