Subject [jira] [Created] (IO-522) Symbolic links get followed in deleteQuietly
Date Mon, 14 Nov 2016 14:36:58 GMT
Daniel Temme created IO-522:

             Summary: Symbolic links get followed in deleteQuietly
                 Key: IO-522
             Project: Commons IO
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Utilities
    Affects Versions: 2.5
            Reporter: Daniel Temme
            Priority: Critical

IO-168 describes the problem. 

`deleteQuietly` will behave correctly for nested symlinks but the initial call erroneously
calls `cleanDirectory`. Calling `deleteDirectory` and returning would probably be the better
behaviour (analogous to `forceDelete`)
