--force-non-empty-directories

This is a command-line option for the mariadb-backup & mariabackup commands.

This option, when specified, makes --copy-back or --move-back transfer files to non-empty directories. Note that no existing files will be overwritten. If --copy-back or --nove-back has to copy a file from the backup directory which already exists in the destination directory, it will still fail with an error.
