Hello,
I am using Drupal 7.18 on a server Ubuntu 12.10
In the folder , I have:
1) a file ( test.txt ) and
2) a link to the file ( testlink.txt -> test.txt ).
Using the IMCE File Manager, If I delete the link 'testlink.txt', IMCE atually deletes the target of the link 'text.txt' and leave 'testlink.txt' intact.
The expected behavior should be that the link is deleted and that the target (test.txt) is left untouched.
Thanks for yo attention,
Best regards
