Unix Hard Links & Toast



2 answers to this question

Recommended Posts

I know nothing about UNIX. However, if burning a disc using the Data window doesn't work you might try creating a temporary partition within UNIX and burning that using the Image File setting in the Copy window. If I'm totally off base then my guess is there is nothing you can do.

Toast can only support hard links if the file system on the target (whether a physical optical disk or an image file) supports hard links.


HFS+ on OS X appears to support hard links, but I don't know what the mechanism is. It's possible that burning the disk from a HFS+ folder using Mac Only might work. I'm not sure about other modes. Experimentation might be the only way to be sure. Create a folder with a large file in it, create a hard link to the file in the same folder, set up the burn and see whether the amount of data is equal to the file size (hard links work or can be simulated), or double the data size (hard links don't work, but are worked around by creating two copies of the file).
