Public bug reported:

Hello, I wanted to backup my home directory. When I added the link to home, it said that some files were excluded. Which is actually good.
Then I added the hidden files, and it calculated, that my DVD is to small to burn 150GB!
I rechecked it with k3b, and k3b noted that ~/.wine/dosdevices/c: is a link and if I like to follow them. k3b ignored by default the z: link in my case (because of the size? logic?).

It would be nice to see this feature in brasero. Or maybe just a hint which file is causing the large space consumption or that it ignores links.
I had no change to check with brasero whether to find this file. And browsing the folders to find the useless link is a bit frustrating.

Thanks Daniel
