Why isn't my shared directory xyz being symlinked but all the files within it are?

This happens if you still have the main xyz directory in your repository or the current release, but some of its contents have been removed.

DeployHQ checks each directory in shared to ensure that another (and potentially more up to date) copy of it doesn't exist in the repository and if it does, it will traverse through any subfolders until it finds a folder or file that isn't present.

It will then symlink those files or folders on an individual basis, which will mean this part of the deployment might take longer than expected. Check to ensure that no folders in shared are in your repository, then once any duplicates are removed and committed, try another deployment and you should find that process is quicker.
