Empty directories are excluded when writing to tape

Hi,

I just found out by accident that empty directories are excluded when running a file-to-tape job. I don't know if this is a bug or by design or if I am missing an option, but we would really like to have a way to have them included to be able to guarantee a 100% identical copy of the directory structure to our users. If this is not expected behaviour please let me know and I will create a support request.

Kind regards,
Raymond

Hi Raymond,
That`s an expected behavior, since the job name is "File to Tape" we copy all files skipping empty folders.
But thanks for the request!
