10.4: A caution on the functionality of Burn Folders
Authored by: arglborps on Sep 15, '05 09:39:47PM

I think it should be pretty obvious that you can't put any files into an alias of a folder, because an alias is a file that simply points to a real folder on your harddisk it cannot have any content by itself.

It's the same with aliases in the Finder. Or did you expect that if you make an alias of a folder, then open the alias an delete some files in there you'd only delete aliases to all the files? No.

THIS IS CONSISTENT BEHAVIOUR.

Maybe but you do *select* a folder to make an alias of it while you *create* a burn folder... Just like you would create a fresh new folder in the Finder if you wanted to move your stuff for further backup purpose.
