what happens when ...

just out of curiosity:

what happens in the following situation.

I make a safety clone (share users and apps), so SD copies system files and some apple apps, but symlinks all other 3rd party apps and user accounts (AFAIK).

Now i make a copy script that includes the "safety clone" script, and, in addition, copies some more 3rd party apps, like Microsoft Office.
However, on my external disk, the microsoft office folder is already symlinked to the original one -- what does SD do? Does it
1. just copy the office folder, which could mean that it actually copies the original folder back into itself, because of the symlink pointing back? or, does it
2. first remove that symlink, and then copy?

Best regards,
