Thanks, I'll test what's going on tomorrow. It's odd, since only whole directories are being symlinked, when Titanium Backup asks what's in the directories the filesystem should pass it the real contents.

This is the first time I've heard of this type of issue, especially as data is one of the most messed around with locations. Thought T B would be more robust.

No, soft sym-link is just a file (everything in Linux is a file) point to the real directory, so when you restore TB just knows it's a symlink and copy/restore that sym-link instead of the real file.
If you don't wipe, the original file still here so nothing happened, just wipe /datadata and test.

Confirmed, thank you. We'll need to ask Titanium Track to fix this.

In the meantime I'll work on a script to at least try to shift everything to data. This may take a few days (since I'm travelling internationally for a few days)

Hi,

Did you succeed in contacting TB's author about the issue reported in the OP ?

I'm very interested in using your script but I want to be sure those kind of issues are solved first .

Thanks.

Zatta, would you update your wiki to show that this method provides better performance than the .nodatadata method? At the moment it calls it 'advanced' without saying what the benefits are!

I bought TB around 2 years ago. I'd even consider buying a yearly licence to have access to the latest features if that means development can remain this fast. Always excellent.

Better like this?

It is not my wiki, it is ours (including everyone that reads it). Founded by Rschenk, I think it is a good place to share knowledge.

Too true, one man's wiki would be a lonely place indeed

Could I request edit ability? I hope to be able to add to this method over time (put together a flashable ZIP and maybe even an app...)

Sure, fill in this form or pm rschenk.
I was thinking about the ability to create an app for it but I think we need a script to revert the changes as well for usability.
