[ubuntu] 12.04 Too many levels of symlinks

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi There, Currently using a Linux machine to backup peoples data. I'm using ClamAV to scan their machines for virus's etc but prior to that I normally copy their data from their HDD Attempting to copy their data returns a "Too many levels of symlinks" error. And refuses to copy any further data. Does anyone know a way around this? Obviously I could just delete the temporary internet files but some people hotdesk on their machines and as such they have a number of profiles and going through and removing each directory could take considerable time. Anyone have any suggest (Hardware)
