Windows File History and Meteor projects


#1

I was wondering if anyone uses the File History capability in Windows 10 and attempted to back up their Meteor projects with it?

On Windows, Meteor uses reparse points that help reduce the space used on the file system from what I can tell. However, I don’t think it can’t handle things correctly when they exist and the target link is missing (which could happen if say we had a very long running meteor installation and we just wanted to free up some space by removing AppData/Local/.meteor and having a fresh Meteor slate.

I don’t normally backup my meteor projects as they are usually on a git server anyway, but I noticed the behaviour as I was planning to do a clean install of Windows 10.
