Hi all,

I created data libraries using options "Upload files from filesystem paths" and "_Link to files without copying into Galaxy_".
It worked but I use symbolic links because my data are frequently updated

The problem is that Galaxy takes the real link (inside "external_filename" column in "dataset" table) and doesn't find the
files when it is deleted.

For example, I uploaded a dataset for a data library without copying : /databank/uniprot/current/fasta/all.fasta -> /databank/uniprot/01_12_2012/fasta/all.fasta
The real path is put in the database and it's a problem when it is deleted.

Is there a way for galaxy to take the symbolic link directly in the database instead of the real path.

Thanks in advance!
