I am trying to add some symlink to my move folder. But I get the following error:
Can't follow symlink without -L/--copy-links

Which script do I need to edit to add -L ?

Reason for doing this:
I like to have new releases stay on my HDD until my HDD get to a certain point of full or when I deem them old and archivable. I have roughly 20TB on my unraid server.
Right now I have been just moving files from my unraid server to a archive VM that has /move for archiving manually. I would like to just mount these drives to this VM to eliminate the unneeded transfer to the VM.
Current proccess: Mount folder to archive VM, Copy files to /move folder on archive. Wait for 750GB to transfer to VM and then /move script starts once files start moving.
Ideally I would like to just mount the folder that I want to start archiving and let my VM transfer from the unraid drive to gdrive.

+1 for a solution to "Which script do I need to edit" although for more pedestrian reasons. (I symlink the files for movies spawning from TV shows (ie: Deadwood, Entourage, etc) to the TVShow/Specials/ folder).
