As a server administrator, I would like to be able to use the SSHFS filesystem for local backups.

All that should be done is make an option to disable checking the inode count really was increased and it would work perfectly...

[2017-05-04 00:30:03 +0200] warn [backup] Hard link reported success but doesn’t seem to have worked! at /usr/local/cpanel/bin/backup line 2051.

Adding an option to disable this extensive verification would take a few minutes of development, I cannot believe it's not working out of the box.

PS: The main reason this could some in handy is because you can mount the remote drive very easy like this and you don't have the risk of (over)filling the local disk with too many backups.

It's really insane we cannot backup to SSHFS just because of this superfluous checks

Any update on this? The incremental feature would be terrific with this!
